    Barn owl is voted Bird of the year in California

    The Audubon Society's California chapter has named the common barn owl as the "Bird of the Year". The bird was chosen between seven candidates, including the California condor. The common bird of prey received almost 14,000 out of 20,000 votes cast by the bird conservation society. Barn owls are best known for their white heart-shaped faces and tiny, dark eyes. They're popular with farmers because they eat pests such as rats. This is the second year that the Audubon Society has held this contest. Last year's winner was the yellow-billed magpie.
