There are 32 sub species of the common Barn Owl (Tyto alba) found throughout the world.
Barn Owl feathers are super soft, this helps them to fly and hunt silently.
Barn Owls are able to find the smallest of prey in complete darkness due to their incredible hearing.
Their ears are located one higher than the other, helping them to pinpoint tiny sounds. The left ear captures sound below them and the right ear focuses on the sound above them.
Barn Owls screech, they never hoot!
