Barred owls (Strix varia) have reached high densities within the range of the northern spotted owl (S. occidentalis caurina) and are rapidly increasing in number within the range of the California spotted owl (S. o. occidentalis). Encroaching populations of barred owls pose a significant competitive threat to the viability of both spotted owl. United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
The Northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis caurina) ranges from British Columbia to Marin County in California.A related subspecies, the California spotted owl (Strix occidentalis occidentalis), lives in the Sierra Nevada's remaining old-growth -sized with soft brown eyes, spotted owls show remarkably little fear of people and will take offerings of live food, like so.

In addition to studying the ecology of California Spotted Owl, IBP has conducted conservation-relevant research on Northern Spotted Owl. We partnered with personnel at North Cascades National Park in Washington to survey the dwindling population of the species in the Park, including at remote wilderness areas many days' hike from the nearest road.

The spotted owl (Strix occidentalis) is a species of true is a resident species of old-growth forests in western North America, where it nests in tree hollows, old bird of prey nests, or rock crevices.
