The barred owl’s ears aren’t visible from the top of their head, so they appear to have no ears when viewing them. Its sharpened hearing allows the barred owl to find its prey in complete darkness. Due to its streamlined shape of its flight feathers, it can swoop down without making a sound. An immature barred owl can “climb” up a tree by using its bill and talons to grasp tree bark.
