To hear songs, learn identification information, migratory patterns, and some fun facts, check out the Barred Owl page offered by one of my favorite resources: the Cornell Lab of Ornithology »
This is one that I heard for the first time about 8 years after living here. Again, it’s hard to spot owls so usually my identification is based on their calls. The clear “who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all…” call was unmistakable and super cool to hear off in the distance!
Interestingly the biggest predatory threat to this owl is the larger Great Horned Owl.
