Yesterday while out on a walk I heard a flurry of wings, and looked up to see an owl landing on a branch. It seemed very curious about me and Baloo.
I googled BC owls and think that it is a Barred Owl – apparently also known as the the ‘hoot owl’ or ‘black-eyed owl’ according to SimplyWildCanada.com
From the Canadian Owl Foundation: “The Barred Owl has a very distinctive call. Traditionally, the mnemonics for this are “Who cooks for you” and “Who cooks for you all”. http://www.theowlfoundation.ca/species.htm
