There have been two sightings of a Barred Owl in the past couple of weeks. They look very similar to Spotted Owls. Allen Francis photographed this owl.
A Barred Owl's stomach markings are vertical, and a Spotted Owl's are horizontal. The Barred Owl's call is said to sound like, "Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all." You can see if you agree by listening here at this link at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Barred_Owl/sounds
Thanks to Allen and Lita for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
