Raptor Facts

This owl is very closely related to the Long Eared Owl but has distinctively large feet. These owls will often nest on the ground even though it is designed with short wings and long tail for life in the woods. A Striped Owl was once cross-bred with a Barn Owl. Although the eggs were fertile they did not hatch. Were they once closely related?
