I would first like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for your informative posts regarding the birds of Iowa. I have recently moved back to Iowa and am looking forward to a season of successful birding based on your suggestions. I have a query for you all that I am hoping someone can answer. I would very much like to see a Barn Owl, however, I am aware that their locations are kept quiet to allow them the peace they need to live. I was hoping that someone would be able to point me in the right direction so that I could see one with the understanding that I would simply look, then leave the birds to their lives. Please feel free to e-mail me back at this address privately with any ideas. I am willing to travel in order to see them.
