The Barn Owl (Tyto alba) - is a stunningly beautiful bird with golden/buff coloured upper parts laced with silver grey and white under-parts. It has a distinctive white heart shaped face and when seen in flight the overall impression is of a large white bird.

A Barn Owl will be fully grown from only ten weeks old, it stands 25cm tall (from head to feet) and is 33-35cm from the top of its head to the tip of its tail.

Barn Owls shriek and hiss, they don't hoot (that's the Tawny Owl).
