Once while walking in the woods, I looked up when I heard a chickadee scolding and saw a Barred Owl perched high in the tree waiting to swoop down on unsuspecting prey. They like to hunt for mice, voles, squirrels, amphibians and small birds. Below his perch were round pellets of undigested bones and fur he'd coughed up from previous meals.
Unfortunately their numbers are in decline as more and more moist woodlands are being developed.
