    The Barn Owl hunts by using its hooked beak and plunges its long, sharp talons into its prey to capture and kill the animal.

     

    Barn Owl Facts – Eyes and Ears

    Barn Owls have large eyes and exceptional hearing. A Barn owl uses its eyes to stop hitting obstacles in flight and its ears for locating prey with exceptional accuracy.

     

    The Head and Neck of a Barn Owl

    One of the many Barn Owl facts is that they can rotate their necks and look directly behind them. Barn Owls have immobile eyes so by rotating their head they can see more around them.

     

    Barn Owl Wings

    Their wings are large in comparison to their bodies which allow them to glide silently towards prey.
