Barred owls can be found in the Nearctic region, which consists of temperate Greenland, arctic North America, and high mountainous regions of the Northern temperate zone. They have also been found in areas of the Easter United States as far as Florida, and sometimes in Texas too.
They live in coniferous trees and wooded swamps near water sources. When they are roosting they need dense foliage and large trees with with space enough for nesting. Because of this they are most likely to be found in old growth forests. Barred Owls tend to be threatened in areas where logging is high because of the lack of old growth trees in which to nest.
The Barred Owl are a large bird who extensively live in woodlands. Funny enough, they are known for their “who cooks for you, who cooks for you all” sounding hoots. They are a common owl and can grow up to 20 inches tall with an impressive wingspan of four feet!
These birds are greyish-brown, have dark eyes, and a small, hooked bill. They also do not have ear tufts like other owls. The owl’s talons are sharp, strong and are yellow. Barred Owls prefer to live in areas with a lot of pine trees and near the water. There they find their preys like mice, voles, shrews, moles, rats, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, opossums, bats, birds, smaller owls, frogs, lizards, fish and more. They stay at their nests until night time then it’s hunting time.
The Barred Owls are helpful to humans because they help control the rodent and other animal population. They live in United States and North America and have recently expanded its range to Mexico as their habitat is being destroyed by deforestation.
