 Had heard that Barreds have been directly competing and often replacing 
spotted owls out west for a while but had no idea they are starting to  "cull" 
them now.
 There is a very similiar scenario in southern Mexico with Barred owls 
competing with a little smaller but close relative Fulvous owls(strix fulvescens)
 The Fulvous owls are endemic to mts in the state of Chiapas and have been 
pretty isolated from Barreds for a long time but for one reason or another 
Barreds have expanded into Fulvous habitat.
