The barred owl is one I hear often when the weather is warmer and the windows are open at night. It has a distinctive series of hoots that end with a downward AW sound.
This large owl is also distinctive because of its deep brown eyes. Most owls have yellow eyes.
I've painted this owl against a midnight sky full of stars. You can see the sky part of the painting in the video demo below.
The original is sold, but you can get a print of it in my Fine Art Prints shop here: Barred Owl print.
