lives in meadows, grasslands, and wetland edges in hollow trees and barns
habitats are being destroyed, some by harsh weather
humans have made nesting boxes for them
they get most of the water that they need from eating their prey
they almost never have been observed drinking in the wild.
By: Nina, Luke, Thuraiya, and Riley
Why it's endangered
Not as many hollow trees
Not as many farms
There has been an increase use in rodent poison in result of smaller food source
A great increase in Barn Owl predators such as Great Horned Owls and raccoons that eat their young
Now sit back and relax. Lets watch a video!
How To Protect The Barn Owl
do not disturb them
provide nesting boxes if you live near the barn owl's habitat
provide fake animals as guards to protect young

you should stop using rodent poison
It usually takes 29-34 days for a Barn Owl eggs to hatch.
The Wingspan of a Barn Owl is about 39.4-49.2 in.
The Barn Owl has about 2-18 eggs per clutch.
Their are up to 46 different races of Barn Owls.
Female Barn Owls are somewhat more showier than males. Females more reddish and more heavily spotted chests.
The oldest known Barn Owl lived in Ohio and was 15 years and 5 months old.
Why You Should Save Barn Owls
You should save them because they help keep our rodent population even which is good for farms so the rodents don't eat the crops that we eat.
