View of a northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis). : Stock Photo
Because of shrinking habitat, the northern spotted owl may be mating itself into extinction by mating with other species. In several instances, northern spotted owls have mated with barred owls (Strix varia) that have moved into the old-growth forests in the northwestern U.S., which were previously the domain of the northern spotted owl. This owl is one of only 2,000 pairs in the world. He is living on a timber sale area called Basin View that is 150 acres of old growth forest.
