: Three photographs document the barn owl, Tyto alba, which lives in fields and meadows where rodents are plentiful. In the early twentieth century, the barn owl could be found throughout Ohio, but its territory has been reduced due to the switch to more intense row-crop farming and a general reduction in farms in the state. In 2004, the barn owl is endangered in Ohio, although populations exist in other parts of North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Barn owls live three to four years and grow to approximately 15 inches tall. The photographs measure 3" x 3" (7.62 x 7.62 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
