Barred Owl

Barred Owls (Strix varia) are another bird I'm more likely to hear than to see since they are nocturnal. Barred Owls are widely distributed throughout the eastern US and Canada. They are smaller than the Great Horned Owl and bigger than a Screech Owl.

The bird shown here is used in educational programs at the Kalamazoo Nature Center.

Beautiful creature. There is an owl that provides beautiful music for my evening walks with my dog.
