Barn Owls sleep during the day and are active at night, they’re stealthy hunters, and have exceptional hearing.
They can pick up the very faintest noise from their prey and use it pinpoint the prey’s location. They even are able to use it to locate prey under cover like in grass or snow.
They are called “Barn” Owls” as quiet barns on wide open farmland are the perfect places for them to build their nests. The barns give them protection from the weather and predators, and the farmland also offers them their favorite food - - - rodents - - - which they swallow whole.
They do not “hoot”. Barn Owls make harsh, eerie screeches.
