On our trip back from the maritimes our GPS sent us through downtown Montreal with stop, stop and sort of go traffic.
Got through that then saw a traffic jam ahead of ud. Managed too get off at an exit which was right beside us.
Ended up at a small zoo, the 
 Ecomusem Zoo
The animals were all native to the area and were injured animals that could not be released  into the wild.
Don't know this barn owl's story but it looked like it was having a nap.

Tyto alba
Up to 46 different races of the Barn Owl have been described worldwide. The North American form is the largest, weighing more than twice as much as the smallest race from the Galapagos Islands.
