I've seen lots of barn owls, the most remarkable time being when one got tangled in a fishing line that had somehow gotten stuck in a tree on our farm. We cut it loose and took it to a rehabilitation place, but sadly its wing was dislocated and it had to be euthanized. I've also seen Great Horned Owls watching our chickens, and one when I was on a walk in the woods near my home. We almost always have a barn owl or even a family of them hanging around the farm, where we have an owl box in one of the open barns. My younger brother collects owl pellets and is going to sell them to a distributor once more schools are in session.
