Boreal owls, also known as the northern spotted owl, are a species of owl that can be found in North America and parts of Europe.
These owls are distinguished by their brown and white coloring, as well as their distinctive "spots."
Boreal owls typically reside in boreal forests, which is where they get their name from. These forests are located near the north pole and are made up of evergreen trees. Although they are able to live in other types of forests, boreal forests provide the perfect habitat for these owls due to the dense tree coverage and abundance of small prey.
