The barred owl (Strix varia), also known as northern barred owl or hoot owl, is a true owl native to eastern North America. Adults are large, and are brown to grey with barring on the chest.[2] Barred owls have expanded their range to the west coast of the United States and Canada, where they are considered invasive.[2] Mature forests are their preferred habitat, but they are also found in open woodland areas.[2] Their diet consists mainly of small mammals, but they are also known to prey upon other small animals such as birds, reptiles, and amphibians.[3]
