We had one in our barn for a season! An amazing and beautiful raptor!
How adorable is this small plastic barn owl? Our toy barn owl is just the right size replica for a shoebox diorama. This little barn owl model will fit in a shoe box along with examples of animals you might find on a farm or in the woods. Create a landscape with rocks, plants, grass, make a river or stream from anything that strikes your imagination, and there you go - a scene of wildlife on our planet. Our plastic toy barn owl is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other owls.
About Barn Owls
The barn owl (Tyto alba) is a pale-colored, long-winged species of owl found in many parts of the world. Barn owls measure up to 20 inches in height and can weigh as much as 28 oz. Barn owls feed on virtually anything it can catch and kill (including birds as large as itself) and are nocturnal hunters, swooping back and forth over open ground or perching on high posts to watch for and then ambush prey.
Like most owls, the barn owl is nearly silent in flight, due to noisy air turbulence being shredded by tiny serrations on the leading edges of its flight feathers. Barn owls do not "hoot", but instead use a screech that can carry over long distances and are highly piercing up close.
