Biology & History
The Barn Owl – tyto alba– is one of the most widespread birds of prey being found in most parts of the world. They are fondly known as the ghost owl because of their white plumage, eerie screech and silent hunting at night. They predate small rodents which is usually done at night but they are seen hunting more and more during the day in the UK.
Owls are known in most cultures as a symbol of knowledge and wisdom and in Greek mythology owls were honoured by Athene, the goddess of wisdom and are now protected in the ancient Greek Acropolis in Athens.
