Zoom Did You Know
There are about 205 species of owls. These are divided into two basic groups; barn owls and true owls.
Barn owls have a heart-shaped face, long legs and powerful talons. They are considered medium-sized owls with wingspans of usually around 106 cm (3½ feet). 
True owls are a more diverse group than the barn owls with almost 190 species. True owls can vary greatly in size from the mini Elf Owl (40 grams/1.4 oz) to the bulky Eurasian Eagle Owl (up to 1.5–3 kg/3.3–6.6 lb). True owls have a round facial disc, short tail and large head and their mottled plumage helps to conceal them from predators and prey.
