I have encountered Barred Owls in our boreal forests in several locations in Nova Scotia. More than once it has surprised me by sitting in a nearby tree and looking at the interloper. It's our most common and wide spread owl and easily identified by its call or dark eyes. The flight as with all owls is completely silent.
The Boreal Owl is not shy or aggressive in my experience so once found it is easy to photograph. There are several breeding pairs in the Portuguese Cove, Ketch Harbour to Sambro Head area.
