Tyto alba (Scopoli, 1769) - Pe軻li Baykuş [TR], Barn Owl [EN], with local vernacular name "İnsan Kuşu (Human Bird)", is one of the widest ranged terrestrial birds. It ranges in all continent except for Antarctica. It is single species of the family Tytonidae in Western Palaearctic. It has long leg and white ventral side. Other owls in the region belong to the family Strigidae, typical owls.
It feeds on especially small mammals, including bats.
This owl is the most common owl species in Cyprus. Especially near Lefkoşa (Nicosia), it is very common. We saw at 16 individuals at least for two hours of tonignt. Even if four individuals roosted on one small olive tree.

This was taken along road near Lefkoşa-Ercan Airport of K.K.T.C. (T.R.N.C.) by help of Barış Saydam (buzzard) from Girne (Krenia). Many thanks again Barış.
Also Mustafa Szen (
spalaxtr) who is one of my best friends and today returned to Zonguldak Province of Trkiye, likes very much to take photographs of this species.
So, I dedicate this shot to both of Barış and Mustafa.

Hello Ahmet,
This is a very nice capture of the Barn Owl.
Great exposure,colour and details.
I don't think I would have included the barbed wire though. In fact,I think a closer crop all around would give it more impact.
I've posted an alternative crop in a workshop just to compare with.

My fried Ahmet,

Thank you very much for your very nice gift. As you say I wish I took the photo of this species. Just after my returning you take it. Pity for me. I hope, for the next time.
Kind regards.


Hi Ahmet,
A nice capture of this barn owl. A rare to see bird at our place. So only found in zoo. Excellent details and composition. In our village sayings it is messenger of goddess Laxmi (goddess of wealth). It brings good fortune. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ahmet
Nice shot of this beautiful owl with very good details and pose. You did good work here.

Hello Ahmet,
You are showing us wildlife that we missed in Cyprus. This capture of a Barn Owl is excellent with good sharpness and use of flash. Maybe you could have cropped out the barbed wire as this shot is sharp enough to come closer.
Well done and TFS!
Best wishes, Ivan

great POV.interesting details of the plumage.

Beautiful capture Ahmet, I love the light on the owl. I would have cropped the bottom part to remove the metallic thread and only keeping a bit of the perch. An amazing shot!. Congratulations!

Very effective and enjoyable capture. Fantastic against the black background! Lord Potty's crop and treatment improves on that.
Well done! Cheers, Klaus
