At least until the barn swallows came along and started swallowing them.

...... That's not how that works... But whatever...

@miraclerandy I'm pretty sure that's exactly how it works.

No dude. Name describes the bird, not the other way around. The barn own was called a moon-face owl before there were barns.

Forget the name. This specific species of owl that likes to nest in barns was clearly thrilled with this invention.

So the owls lived on the moon before we made barns? I don't think that makes much sense bro, but you probably know more about owls than I do so I'll believe you.

.... I'm going to assume you were trying to make a dry joke. The owl was called "moon-faced" because it's face looks like the moon. I didn't name them, so I have no control over why they're named that way.

Anyway, 10:30, the other night, I go out in my yard, and there's the Wurster kid, looking up in the tree. I say, "What are you looking for?"

He says "I'm looking for my burrow owl."
I say, "Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick. Everybody knows, the burrow owl lives. In a hole. In the ground. Why the hell do you
think they call it a burrow owl, anyway?"

But you know what, Flyaway_Prizm? I like you. You're not like the other people here in this trailer park.

@contextrip ...... That's not how that works... But whatever...

Lol typical, not understanding how barn owls work, I was personally there and I know they where absolutely thrilled when barns where invented

I see the other people on here disagreeing. But you are right. They are thrilled. That's why they rather build nests there than anywhere else.

A lot of animals that already existed in nature thrive way better in cities.

-cokroaches
-pidgeons
-rats
Etc.

There was this overweight raccoon living her best life that used to waddle up my fire escape for scraps whenever I bbq'd out there. She'd sit down on her rump and take the shape of a beanbag chair while eating what ever was on the grill. She especially loved roasted peppers. :)

Pigeons were domesticated from wild doves, so it's a stretch to say they existed in nature before humans built cities.

I was depressed to learn that after the nuclear bombs fall the cockroaches will be mostly dead in a year cause they can't survive the winter with our indoor heating.

Well we had to, their names weren't making sense for a while there

Good things come to those whoooo wait.
