Barn Owl (Tyto alba)

Description

I was taking photos of insects when I heard a loud screech. I turned to find this Barn Owl perching in the tree next to me. As I got this shot, I saw 3 more fly by the tree together. Photos 2-3 were taken without flash.

The attached audio clip includes 2 female Barn Owls making purring calls (what the Cornell Lab of Ornithology calls these calls) and what I believe is a hunting screech.

The shown individual didn't pay me any mind as I chatted with it. It silently flew off sometime in the next 6 minutes after I returned to photographing insects.
