Reader and Canton resident Kim Salcedo informs us that this owl was in her neighborhood the other day and not spooked by residents looking and taking photographs. Great shots! Thank you Kim.

    From a quick seach on the internet I’m pretty sure this is a a barred owl. The barred owl is a large typical owl native to North America. Best known as the hoot owl for its distinctive call, it goes by many other names, including eight hooter, rain owl, wood owl, and striped owl. Wikipedia
    Scientific name: Strix varia
