Barn Owl – Tyto alba

barnowlwebThis is a photo I took a while back of Barn Owl Tyto alba – they are relatively common and are found around the world.  They are also known as Ghost Owls in some parts – I can understand this – with their white and lightly coloured feathers and their silent flight. They have a screeching call.

A good while ago (actually a few years ago) I started a linocut of a barn owl but in the midst of ‘life’ and the busyness of family I have never actually completed the design and carved it. Something I should really remedy…
