Barred Owl in Olympia

Barred Owl seen morning of Oct 12th 2008

Even though Barred Owls are mostly nocturnal I was able to catch some photos of one near our home in the Olympia area. "Barred Owls first reached Washington in 1965. Does not build a nest - uses large cavities, nest of other species. Vocal, territorial and occasionally even toward humans".
