The kids were very excited to spot an owl up in a tree yesterday.
We discovered it was a Barred owl.
Here is an up close YouTube video:
Voice: Loud, very vocal hooting, often in response to each other. "Hoo-hoo-to-hoo-oo, hoo-hoo to wha-aa" suggests " Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you all?" They are extremely vocal in February and March, and again during late summer and fall. Probably the most vocal of all owls.
Zman took the following pictures:
Never know what you’ll be seein’ around here.
