Re: Night Bird Call Mystery
Thanks to everyone for the helpful replies.
It was most definitely a fledgling Great Horned Owl's "begging" call. After hearing it for a total of about five hours over two nights it was immediately recognized from recordings on the web. My wife concurred. I do hear adult Great Horned Owls up here on the hill occasionally.
Always nice to have a mystery solved, rather than lingering in unknown status.
Clear skies, Alan
