[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Barn Owl - Tyto alba

I find owling (night time birding), quite interesting and I enjoy it a lot. I have to confess that being in a forest alone is one of the creepiest feelings and even a small falling leaf can scare you a lot. One of those nights and one of the most beautiful night birds.

Eastern Barn Owl:
The Barn Owls from the Indopacific region are sometimes separated as Eastern Barn-owl, Australian Barn-owl or Delicate Barn-owl (T. delicatula). While this may be warranted, it is not clear between which races to draw the line between the two species. Also, some island subspecies are occasionally treated as distinct species. While all this may be warranted, such a move is generally eschewed pending further information on Barn Owl phylogeography.
