barbagianni

    Newer Older

    Il barbagianni (Tyto alba) raggiunge una lunghezza tra i 34 ed i 40 cm ed un'apertura alare di quasi un metro. E' caratterizzato da un disco facciale a cuore e orecchie prive di ciuffo. Le parti superiori sono di colore fulvo-dorato macchiettate di nero e bianco, mentre quelle inferiori sono di colore bianco o fulvo. Di colore bianco è anche il grande disco facciale cuoriforme, mentre gli occhi sono neri ed il becco bianco-rossiccio.
    Nelle femmine, di solito di dimensioni maggiori, i colori sono più cupi.
    E' un uccello stazionario nel vero senso della parola, ed in genere non intraprende neanche brevi escursioni. Non ha nemici e non teme l'uomo.
    Di notte percorre le campagne con un volo ondulato e leggero radente al suolo. Quando vola emette un grido rauco e spiacevole
    Diffusione
    Viene detto anche Allocco comune, ed è immediatamente riconoscibile per il grande cerchio facciale a forma di cuore che utilizza come se fosse un grande padiglione, gli serve infatti per incanalare le onde sonore verso i canali auricolari, riuscendo a percepire anche il rumore dei passi di un topolino che si muove nell'erba.
    E' molto diffuso in tutta l'Europa centrale e meridionale, in Asia Minore, in Arabia, in gran parte dell'Africa compreso il Madagascar, in India, in Indocina, parte dell'arcipelago malese, in Nuova Guinea, Australia, America settentrionale, centrale e meridionale.
    In Italia è comunissimo, ed stazionario ed erratico.
    In Campania è presente sia nel Parco Nazionale del Vesuvio che in quello del Cilento e Vallo di Diano.
