Strix varia

BARRED OWL

Florida native

 

One of the larger owls found in Florida and one of the more likely 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 of Florida and is a pleasant refrain when camping around the state.
Barred owls are found mostly in the eastern portion of the United States, but the range now extends into Mexico and Canada and overlaps the range of the closely related spotted owl in the northwest.
