These large birds are one of the more likely owls to be seen during the day. The distinctive "who cooks for you, who cooks for you alllllll" call can often be heard beginning around dusk in the woods and is a pleasant refrain when camping in the wild.
Barred owls are found mostly in the eastern portion of the United States, but the range now extends into both Mexico and Canada and overlaps the range of the closely related spotted owl in the northwest.
This photograph was made during a spring migratory bird count in Sugar Mill Gardens, Port Orange, Florida.
