Solitary unless a breeding pair with chicks.
|Approval Level :||Mod; Being territorial, such an owl would potentially be hunting the area repeatedly (though individuals "passing through" are possible).|

Being of a large size, any cat the barred owl finds to be weak is an ideal peice of prey. In extream cases a warrior might be attacked.
