Spotted owls are collateral damage of the wood products industry first, then competition from their close cousin. They lived deep within old growth forests of the west until our obsession with the endless stands of cheap timber destroyed their ancient forests. For more than 100 years the old growth forests were cleared, and the owl's territory shrunk. In the 1980's, the spotted owl's cousin, the Barred Owl, found its way across the Rocky Mountains from the east and start to spread throughout the Pacific Northwest. Barred owls out competed the Spotted Owl for food and nesting locations. Habitat loss and competition have left few of these innocent owls in the wild.
