Great Horned, Long-eared and Barred Owls

Alberta’s provincial bird – the Great Horned Owl is the most common owl in the province. Long-eared owls are less common – when seen, they can often be mistaken for Great Horned Owls, but they are about 2/3 the size and have a very distinct orangish, facial disc. My experience with the dark-eyed Barred Owl is limited, but I hope to add many more to this gallery in the near future.
