Where in the world?

Owls live almost everywhere in the world where there is land, except Antarctica and some islands.

Some owls like dark, damp forests of old trees.  Others choose sunny, dry fields or hot, sandy deserts.  Some owls live high in the mountains, others in deep canyons or near swamps.  Some live inside caves-or even under the ground.  Some owls like cities or farms, where they rest on buildings or fence posts.

One owl, the snowy owl, even lives on the frozen tundra.  The tundra is a large, almost flat plain of the Artic region.  There are no trees in the tundra.
