I've been trying to get a picture of these beautiful animals for 7 years. We've heard them and seen them flying but I haven't been able to photograph then until tonight. Please confirm my identification.
Thanks, JD

Description from Wikipedia

Barn-owls (family Tytonidae) are one of the two families of owls, the other being the true owls, Strigidae. They are medium to large sized owls with large heads and characteristic heart-shaped faces. They have long, strong legs with powerful talons. They also differ from Strigidae in structural details relating in particular to the sternum and feet.
