Barn Owl (30)
This is the second picture from my trip to Biljdrop zoo in Rotterdam. There is a very good bird show at this zoo and i shot this fellow while he was flying towards one of the instructors. This is "Barn Owl". The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) is an owl in the family Tytonidae. This is one of the two groups of owls, the other being the typical owls Strigidae. The Barn Owl is the most widely distributed species of Tytonidae, and one of the most widespread species of any bird. Barn Owls occur worldwide, on every continent except Antarctica. They are absent from large areas of Asia, the Sahara Desert and New Zealand. These are birds of open country such as farmland, preferring to hunt along the edges of woods.
