The Barn Owl is not only the world’s most widely distributed species of owl, but it is also one of the most widespread of all birds, as it is found on every continent except Antarctica.

Mice, voles and shrews form the bulk of the Barn Owls diet, but they will also take young rats and have even been observed catching fish from ponds.

Though they typically hunt in the dark, it’s not unusual to see Barn Owls hunting during the day, particularly in mid-winter or when they have chicks to feed.
