The habitat of barn owl also covers an extensive range and is however uncommon in higher mountain regions. The barn owl habitats do not consist of areas with low mean January temperatures, densely forested and intensively cultivated areas. In short the barn owl habitat consists of woodlands, groves, farms, fields, canyons, cliff or towns. The barn owls prefer various forest types, semiarid shrublands, marshes, etc. The barn owl nests underground in burrows or holes in embankments. It also nests in elevated nests of other birds, steeples or barns. If the barn owl finds no nest, it will make do with rubbish and debris heaps. They basically do not build typical bird nests.
