Barred Owl (Strix varia)

Breeding habitats of this large owl (53cm) are dense woods across Canada, United States and south to mountains of Mexico.
Barred Owls don't migrate. In winter, males leave their territories when prey species are scarce.

  5. Beautiful pictures of this owl. I love owls so I soon satisfied with a beautiful photo of an owl. Do you even place a particularly pretty picture of the owl with its flared tail. Beautiful to behold.
    Kind regards,
    Helma

  6. I haven't seen a Barred Owl in a couple of years. That will be my challenge this winter. I had a great year's success with Eastern Screech Owl, and saw my first Snowy Owls of the season the week before last.
