Many birds treat Barn Owls with aggression, they will also attack and /or
display alarm at stuffed specimens, even though they are not mainly a bird
eater. Is this "mobbed by crows, sometimes fatally" associated with
predation? As in are the owls eaten by crows?

Even in the UK Barn Owls are ferociously mobbed by crows, sometimes fatally.

Not sure why though. Where there are lots of crows Barn Owls become 
extremely nocturnal.
