February and March are good seasons to listen for owls calling in Bella Coola.   One quite common owl we have is this guy, the Barred Owl. I surprised this one while driving along the Nusatsum Forest Service Road one day in the fall, and he seemed quite content to watch me from his perch barely 4 or 5 metres away.  Barred owls have that distinctive "who cooks for you" call and if you spend some time near or in the forest you can often spot them. Yesterday I could hear a Barred Owl in the woods near our house calling, sure signs that they are looking for mates and thinking about nesting . Grizzly
