Yesterday, I looked out of the front window and in a tree was an owl looking back at me. It was a Barred Owl and I was lucky to get a nice photo. He was about 20" tall and had cold dark eyes. I checked the bird field guide and Barred Owl's are fairly common in Tennessee. Interestingly its call is "who cooks for you, who cooks for you all.". I think it's a southerner because I heard it call "who cooks for ya'll.
