BarN Owl

The barn owl is the most widely distributed owl on Earth. Owls typically breed once a year unless their food supply is abundant; this species can nest two or three times per year. Barns and abandoned buildings aren’t the only structures barn owls use; deer hunters learn quickly to board up their deer stand when not in use. Barn owls are messy and leave lots of smelly treasures behind, such as piles of poop and morsels of uneaten carcasses.
