In his travels, Audubon encountered Barred Owls in every state he visited. This included most states east of the Mississippi River. He saw them most abundant in Louisiana, and sometimes, even in daylight.
THe Barred Owl flies in silence, so it can easily be overlooked. Many times it is heard, rather than seen. It is sometimes called a “Hoot Owl”, for its hooting call can be heard in forests and swamps.The call of the Barred Owl is described as a “who cooks for you? Who cooks for you all?” sound.
One interesting fact about the Barred Owl is that they do not migrate, they usually stay in a single area their whole lives.
