THE BARN OWL

By gentry3951
Thank you all for your Awards, Votes and Comments on yesterday's upload "THE COMMON BUZZARD*. Up until 9.00pm last night 100% of the people who view the picture voted for it.

With heart-shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white underparts, the barn owl is a distinctive and much-loved countryside bird. Widely distributed across the UK, and indeed the world, this bird has suffered declines through the 20th century and is thought to have been adversely affected by organochlorine pesticides such as DDT in the 1950s and '60s.

Nocturnal birds like the barn owl are poorly monitored by the Breeding Bird Survey and, subject to this caveat, numbers may have increased between 1995-2008.

Beautiful image. Well captured.
Stunning photography, takes me back 40 years as a forestry worker in the midlands living in a cottage and spending summer watching barn owl teaching two chicks to hunt. Not into photography then!!!

Superb shot of the majestic owl bathed in lovely warm light, the background none imposing and clutter free making the viewers experience a very pleasing one.
