Owls

I don't know if this fits best here or in Non-Fireams Discussion. But I live in a pretty rural area, which means forest and woods, which means birds of prey, namely owls.

I've never been able to see an owl in person in the wild, though I've heard them. Mostly Screech Owls, Barred Owls and Great Horned Owls.

I'd like to be able to see and hear a Barn Owl in the wild, but they're not common around here and I've only been able to see some in person at the local bird sanctuary and the Akron Zoo.

BTW, Barn Owls don't hoot:



Also, a behavior shown by Barn Owls (and other Tyto Owls) is known as toedusting. No, that's not a foot fetish term, but rather a threat/defensive posture that Barn Owls do when they feel threatened, angry or frustrated.
