They hunt in areas where many rodents live, in the desert, in forests, basically where there is a tree to rest on.

Feeding Barn Owl

Striga is a more nocturnal animal than ordinary Owls. Wait until dark before you go hunting.

But if he has chicks in the nest, chicks that are hungry, he cries out to hunt at sunset. Before the sun rises, retreat to a dark, dark place in an old building or the hollow of a tree.

At night, when hunting, the Shrike flies over the plains catching its prey on the fly with its powerful claws.

He prefers small mammals, but when he does not find mice, he is also content with small birds. The prey is torn to pieces and swallowed with bones. Parts that cannot be digested are thrown out.

The feathers of this bird are white, with yellowish and reddish hues. It has fine, dark spots. The day acquires a special shade, which is why it received its nickname "Golden Owl".

Breeding Barn Owl

It nests almost anywhere: in old buildings, trees or even on the ground. He makes no effort to build a nest, but settles where he can.

The female striga lays between 5 and 7 eggs, at intervals of 2-3 days. Their incubation begins as soon as the first egg has been laid and lasts from 32 to 34 days. So, in one nest can live 4-5 chicks, of different sizes and ages.

The chicks are covered with white fluff for 6 days. Gradually, it is replaced with a flesh-colored fluff, and later with a thick and woolly coat, which is still visible after 50 days.

Chickens are hungry all the time. Both parents are looking for food to feed them. After about 7 Weeks, their plumage grows and they remain in adulthood. Also during this period, chickens learn to fly and hunt.
