A great horned owl paid us a visit and I blew my chance to get him on tape. Luckily he was still in the neighborhood this evening, but farther away. I managed to grab a sample of him, and thanks to digital editing i was able to isolate his call and get rid of a lot of noise. Owls have pretty good pitch! My feeling is: this is a big damn owl. It sounded like a linebacker calling out a defensive play last night when he was about 50 yards away. the neat thing is that I was able to call him and get him to respond. Sandy thinks my owl calling skills are pretty badass. The dog… well he isn’t too sure about owls.
Here is a sound file. It is an AIFF and is about 750k.
