Ranald...Many years ago, in the late '70's...I was teaching foods & nutrition, even cooking, to lower income families...mainly women, in their own homes in my county. This is a very rural area, & this was during winter...we'd had major snowstorms, etc., and ultimately, I kind of got "snow blindness" from driving my big old Buick through the white countryside. We had snows longer than I could ever remember!!
One day, I passed a barn, & saw a large bird sitting on a fence post, & when he looked at me in the vehicle, I realized I'd just seen a real barn owl. I wonder IF the smallish barn owl the fellow was attracting, even being female, shows that the UK barn owls may all be smaller than ours?? Anybody know difference, if any? PS: Great videos!!!
