    Thank you for your replies. Yes, it is a nice "looking" bird, cute actually. Hard to believe they actually catch their prey like that. This was my "learn something new today!".

    Taken june 27/15 in Balfour, BC Is this a spotted owl? I have audio, but not sure how to put it on here. Can't find any owls that have the same call, but the face looks like a spotted. Maybe it is a young owl? P1280337cr by cyklone 6, on Flickr P1280331cr by cyklone 6, on Flickr
