Barred Owl

The overall impression of the Barred Owl is soft and vulnerable, but it is a skilled predator. In fact, this raptor has been known to attack and eat other smaller owls! Its standard call is a ringing accented series of hoots. Some people believe that the hooting of this owl sounds like someone slowly saying, "who-cooks-for-you, who-cooks-for-you-a-a-a-alllll." This raptor makes many other vocalizations including a frenzied and raucous monkey-like squall that can make the hair on the back of one's neck stand on end. The Barred Owl prefers deep moist forests, wooded swamps, and woodlands near waterways.
