    Barn owls have been referred to as the Monkey-faced owl. That’s fun fact. Also the White Owl, Ghost Owl and Night Owl (which seems redundant). Labratory experiments have show they can catch prey in total darkness.

    By building a nest box to lure a barn owl to stay in your area, you can help control the rodent population.  Nest boxes can be built with PVC or by cutting a hole in a plastic drum and affixing it in a tree.
