No. Some species of owl have feathery tufts that are sometimes mistaken for ears. Barn owls do not have these.

No, the barn swallow, Hirundo Rustica, is a very common species, in no way endangered.

It depends on which type of barn owl you are talking about. If you mean the common barn owl, then the scientific name is "tyto alba". All barn owl species begin with "tyto".

Yes because it is a carnivore but no because the barn owl lives in trees

Yes-the Endangered Species Act of 1973 protects species which are officially listed as "endangered" or "threatened" as is clearly the case with the Barn OwlThe level of protection may vary from state to state depending on how critical the status of the animal-But Barn Owls are, and have been, threatened for a while now.BARN OWLS ARE FULLY PROTECTED BY LAW, AS ARE ALL BIRDS OF PREY.The barn owl, while some local populations may be in decline, is listed as a species of least concern by the IUCN Redlist. Global population stands at around 4,900,000 birds, this clearly shows that the barn owl is not an endangered species. They are protected by federal law in the U.S., But are not covered by the endangered species act, as they have not yet fallen to numbers that meet that criteria.
