Barred Owl


Have you seen a barred owl? You can see barred owls in the eastern half of North America, from Canada, south to Mexico but now you can see a few in the Pacific Northwest. The barred owl has dark eyes and dark rings around the eyes. An adult can grow to 44 cm long with a 112 cm wingspan.

The Barred Owl hunts by swooping down on its prey. It hunts at night. They catch mice, voles and others small animals. Other things that barred owls eat are mostly small mammals, but they may also capture birds, reptiles, crayfish, worms, insects, rabbits, and rats.
