A Barred Owl has been in our neighbourhood since at least early December and frequents a spruce tree in our backyard. We believe he is feasting on the local rabbit, squirrel and possibly stray cat population. Our backyard borders Olympus Park, specifically the forested area. We have found evidence of his feedings in our backyard and the vicintiy of the park.

Location: Olympus Park, Peterborough
Observer: Shawn and Kaylee Mowry
