Barred Owl


5/15/20 - This picture was taken by Sabrina da Silva of Avon and submitted by Bridget de Moura Castro. “The barred owl is the most common of our large owls and is found throughout woodlands here in the Farmington Valley,” writes Jay Kaplan, director of Roaring Brook Nature Center in Canton. “Its’ ‘Who Cooks For You’ call can be heard at any time, day or night during the nesting season. The owls communicate with each other in order to reinforce the bond between male and female, and to let other barred owls know if they are infringing on their territory. If you are able to imitate the distinctive call even in your own yard, they will call back to you.”
