|Cute heart-shaped face barn owl in a Belgian forest © 2013 Ben Heine|
A very cute and colorful heart-shaped face barn owl I found in a forest near where I live in Rochefort. I took this photo with the Canon 5D Mark II. You can view my other pictures of animals at this link.
More info: Barn owls (Tytoninae) are one of the two families of owls, the other being the true owls. They are medium to large sized with large heart-shaped faces and long legs. They live in a wide range of habitats from temperate latitudes to the tropics. They are mostly nocturnal, and generally non-migratory.
