Eastern Barn Owl Tyto alba

Eastern Barn Owls are relatively small owls. They have a characteristic, heart-shaped white facial. Their upper legs are mostly covered with feathers, with bare feet. The Eastern Barn Owl's voice is a loud "screeching" sound. An example can be found here:

I have seen these birds in a number of places predominantly in Queensland on Spotlighting tours with our old friend Murry Hunt operating the Daintree Boatman Nature Tours.
