The Living Forest (123) : Barn Owl

The Barn Owl with its heart shaped face is a bird of open country like farmland or grassland but prefers to hunt along the edges of forests.

It’s a nocturnal bird, but it often becomes active already shortly before dusk and can sometimes be seen during the day.
I spotted this specimen in the neighbourhood of a nest box in the forest. He was sitting there for maybe 2 or 3 seconds. I could only take one shot, but I got him !

Dutch name : Kerkuil
German name : Schleiereule
Latin name : Tyto alba
