Barn Owls are the most widely distributed species of owl. They are distinguished by a light colored heart-shaped face and black eyes with long wings and legs. The Barn Owl doesn’t hoot like typical owls, but has a loud and shrill screech and is also known to hiss like a snake to scare away intruders. A Barn Owl’s diet is mainly made up of rodents, which has helped it be recognized as an important natural control of unwanted pests. 1.125″ Hard enamel pin; black metal.
