The barred owl is a great hunter and can find its food in the dark. The grown-up owl is 17"- 27" and the female is larger than the male. The barred owl is usually found in Canada and the United States. The owl is not shy and will let people come very close, but not at nesting time. The owl will use the same nesting place many years in a row.
If you see any pellets under a tree, it is probably
the spot where the grown-ups take their food. The barred owl's nesting
phase takes about 4 to 7 weeks. When the young barred owl finally
leaves the nest they are not able to fly. The young will first go
to nearby branches. If the young fall to the ground they could climb
the trees with rough bark by holding on to the tree with their mouth and
spreading out their wings across the tree and making steps up the tree.
The barred owl can climb 50 feet in 20 minutes. If you ever see a
baby barred owl by a tree, just leave it there and check again the next
day before calling for help.
