Hello. Very recently I have not been able to find anything on a Barred Owl's behavior. I know the reproduction, predators, habitat, diet and life span just not the behavior.

This site may be helpful

The book Owls of North America by Frances Backhouse may also be useful. There are many other books about owls, you should be able to find more information in a library search. Good luck.

J. Elliott

Author Cleveland Bent's Life Histories of North American Birds has some information on bird behavior.
