An interesting point about the Barn Owl (Tyto alba) 13.5 inches, is that they do not build a nest as such, but lay theire eggs on a heap of pellets made up of indigestable, fur, feathers and bones of theire prey.

Love the position of the owls within the frame. Nicely composed and love the interaction of the owls with each other. On my mothers property has a tall water tower and barn owls nest there. Interesting facts that I never knew. We are too afraid to ever get that close! #4549781
