Here are some types of owl :

The Burrowing Owl makes its home, of course, in a burrow. It is one of the owls that is diurnal (active during the night and day). The Burrowing Owl searches for its prey from atop its burrow mound or by hovering above the ground. It feeds on insects, small mammals, birds, lizards and small fish. It also has a habit of collecting odds and ends and then laying them out around the entrance to its burrow. Weasels, ferrets, snakes and skunks are enemies of the Burrowing Owls and will go after the young owls as food. Burrowing Owls will imitate a rattlesnake's buzz to try to keep enemies away.
The Great Horned Owl gets its name from the large tufts of feathers on its head; they are neither ears or horns, just feathers. It is the largest owl in North America and is sometimes called the "cat owl." The Great Horned Owl is nocturnal and likes to eat rabbits, skunks, mice, squirrels, birds and fish.
