For nearly a year we have made regular owl sightings in the Timber forest.  Some of the owls are clearly barred owls (unwelcome newcomers that pose a threat to native owls).  Other owls, that have been seen clearly and at close range, do not seem to be barred owls, but fit the description of northern spotted owls.  When these sightings were first made, we mustered a special nocturnal session of calling and listening, using our standard protocol.  Nothing was heard.  Sightings continue.  Stay tuned.
