When viewing the big picture means that individuals get stomped on, there is something wrong.
If the spotted owl is so important to the ecosystem, then logic tells us not to cut down any trees, and I guess at that point we would have to live in tents. The fight to preserve the spotted owl was because of some perceived danger that it would become extinct. There are plenty of other owls around to pick up the slack. It was some perceived "uniqueness" that got it listed, not a concern for the ecosystem.
I pity the poor bastard who on the edge of starvation eats one of those critters. They'd probably hang him.
