I found a Barred owl while on a walk. This is the second owl species I found this year. Their diet consist of rodents, rabbits, small owls and sometimes birds. The Barred owl has only one natural predator, which is the Great Horned owl. The Great Horned owl and the Barred owl share the same habitat, so if a Great Horned is nearby the Barred owl will move to a different part of it’s territory.
They are also very territorial and are aggressive to intruders when nesting and raising their young. They make a cool call that is 8-9 notes. Their call sounds like “Who cooks for you” and “Who cooks for you all”.
