What is an owls home called?
The area in which a Barn Owl lives is called its ‘home range’. We don’t use the word ‘territory’ because, unlike some other bird species, such as Tawny Owls, Barn Owls don’t try to defend the area from others of their own species. A home range is very simply the area that they use for hunting, roosting and breeding.

How are humans helping owls in their habitat?
One way that humans have helped owls to have a habitat is through the creation of nesting boxes. They are made in a fashion that attracts the owls and that they feel safe in them. For example in areas where trees that the owls would normally live in are cut down for wood supplies, these nesting boxes are put into place.
