Common Barn Owl - Tyto alba lulu

DNA analysis (as of April 2006) indicates that T. a. lulu is very close to T. a. deliculata from Australia; the genetic distances would not qualify T. a. lulu as a valid subspecies. (M. Wink pers. comm. 27 April 2006).

Also see the nominate description for this species.

Original Description: Peale, Titian R. 1848. United States Exploring Expedition, Vol. 8, Mammalia & Ornithology, p. 74-75.
