SPOTTED OWL HUGGING IN A TWIG

DESCRIPTION

In Canada, this round-headed, dark-eyed bird can only be found in British Columbia, though its range stretches all the way down to Mexico. A victim of habitat destruction (and of competition with the barred owl), spotted owls are calssified as “near threatened’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. There are very few spotted owls in BC, though a a captive breeding program is attempting to rejuvenate the populatation. Larger populatation of spotted owls can be found in California
