-Notes: A medium-sized owl, with a yellow beak, atypical brown eyes, a rounded head lacking ear tufts, the barred owl is named for its barred and spotted cinnamon brown, tan and white plumage. The barred owl resides in the Northern US into Canada and east of the Rockies, and is the counterpart to the spotted owl found in the western United States. It is the only typical owl in the eastern US to have brown eyes and is the most common owl of the deep woods. It makes the widest variety of sounds of all the North American owls. In barred owls the right ear is higher on the skull than the left. This difference in placement allows the owl to determine the direction of a sound source, as sound waves will reach one ear before the other. This triangulation allows the owl to accurately pinpoint prey even beneath a layer of snow. The barred owl's diet consists of small to medium-sized prey, mostly mice, but also fox, squirrel, opossums, weasel, small owls, small birds and snakes, lizards and frogs.
