Scientific Name: Strix Aluco Common Name: barn owl Species Taxonomy: Tito alba What environment would your species be found? Wet environment Species Habitat: grassland Species Diet: shrews, bats, rabbits Species Predators: great horned owl Species Prey: hatching Three Adaptations that the species has: facial ring to help find prey Species Reproduction Process: lays eggs in a period of 8-12 days Species Needs: water Species Life Span:4-15 How is species affected by climate change: "The ghoulish Barn Owl is highly appreciated as a nesting bird. Family groups are welcome around silos and other outbuildings because they are such voracious devourers of rodents. The species is less well known on the wintering grounds—forecast by Audubon's climate model to expand by nearly a quarter by 2080. As expected, the general shift predicted by the model is northward, all the way to southern Canada, where the Barn Owl currently is rare even in summer. Although the winter model portends a potential bright future for this owl, caution is warranted. Changing land-use practices and excessive use of rodenticides have diminished Barn Owl populations, and will continue to do so if not reversed or mitigated."
