Barred Owl

I was searching online just now for a recording of a barred owl and came upon this amazing YouTube video:

Tom,
We have a great environmental center close by, The Heard Natural Science Museum and I was there last weekend walking through. I was fortunate enough to have encountered a Barred Owl in much the same way it's depicted in the video. I was surprised to see it during the day (should I be?). I was within 20ft of it and had to pass beneath its perch to stay on the trail. He took off when I closed to 15ft. What a sight. That was my first owl spotting.

Bryan,
No matter how many times I see or hear one, it's always exciting (and we hear them a lot). From what I can tell, they're active during the day particularly in nesting season, and maybe a bit more active at dusk.
