I believe that's a Short Eared Owl.

 One of at least three barred owls around here that like to keep me awake at night calling back and forth.

Inhad this great gray owl hang around my campsite for a few hours one really foggy day. He flew from one tree to another curious about what I was doing giving me a lot of photo ops.

This one looks more like a spotted owl, darker face feathers, or it could be a hybrid spot/barred owl. :dunno:

I tried posting this earlier, but maybe my pictures were too big? If it shows up twice on here, someone please delete it. This is a northern saw-whet owl from the Washtucna area. I took the picture during a heavy snow a few weeks ago. I was about 3-4 feet away from the owl and didn't have a good camera with me, so I had to use the cell phone.

Confirmed great gray by both the forest service and a few birding groups.

Great pics and one of my favorite birds to watch.

by the way anyone know what type of owl this is, never seen one like that

The photo is a little rough for a better ID but I'd say that is likely a juvenile Northern Hawk Owl.
I know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it
