Barn owl pictures and paintingsbritish bird paintings and prints by bird artist martin ridley
Pictures of barn owls and other British owls

This page focuses on my barn owl pictures. The barn owl, Tyto alba, which is surely one of our most popular owls is one of my oft repeated subject. The picture of a barn owl hovering over an atmospheric marsh never fails to inspire. Other pictures displayed include the tawny owl, little and short - eared owl.

Owls are more vocal than they are visible, they are cryptically camouflaged and during the day most species roost huddled up in cover. Local tawny owls vocalize regularly and can often be seen hunting when they have young. Knowledge of the different owl species' calls enables me to detect the occasional visits by barn, long-eared owls and little owls.

Knowing the "hissing squawk" calls for food of young tawny owls means that I come across them every spring.

OWL LEAVING THE NEST

This youngster was located only a short stroll from my door. Calling from a post overlooking a busy cycle track it hadn't been noticed by anybody else. Owls like many species of predator can be mobbed by their prey species. In an attempt to avoid unwanted attention young owls keep their eyes closed. This safety mechanism was also adopted for me.

Please note the barbed wire might look like its passing through the owls head but I assure you that they have a good depth of fluff on top!
