Barred Owl

 

Barred owls were found across the state, except on the Gulf Coast. More night birding would probably locate barred owls on the coast since there are BBS reports from that area (http://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/htm03 /ra2003_red/ra03680.htm). Since many of the blocks were busted, the barred owls are under represented in the atlas reports.

Barred owls are easy to bring to probable status because they are territorial and usually make a noisy couple.
