[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I got this picture of the Barn Owl yesterday morning. I was about to leave for me office when I heard frantic shrill calls of couple of Rufous Treepies. I came out only to find the owl sitting on a tree near the garden. The birds then began chasing the owl & finally it perched itself on one of the high branches of a tree.

Info on Barn Owl: Widespread resident; readily identified by combination of unmarked white face & contrasting black eyes, white to golden-buff underparts finely spotted with black & white.

Voice: A variety of eerie, screeching & hissing noises.
Habitat: Cultivations.
