Silent Hunter BI8958

Barn Owls are truly remarkable creatures whose success story is nothing short of extraordinary. These birds are found worldwide and have adapted to various habitats, from deserts to forests to grasslands. One of their most impressive abilities is their incredible hearing. Barn Owls can hear so well that they can hunt with amazing accuracy, even in total darkness. They can hone in on the sounds of rodents' footsteps and nibbling, and some researchers believe that they can even determine the type and size of the rodent they are hearing. This remarkable ability makes them one of the most effective hunters in the animal kingdom. No wonder these birds have been able to thrive in so many different environments, and they are truly a global success story.
