It certainly looks like one, they do occur occasionally in Northern California looking at Sibleys range map.

Cheers

Looks like Barred, but can you be more precise about the location. California is a big place and Barred Owl is only found in a very small part of it.

Looking at ebird, Barred Owl is more widespread in California than I had realized. This is not the odd sighting I imagined.
