Boidnoise Various nature recordings by Bernhard Kroeger



  • Spotted owl calls and vocalizations

    recorded in Nevada County with  Fostex FR-2LE Telinga dish and twin science mic on July 20, 2007 at 0120.  This recording is 3:32 minutes long and contains 7 5 note territorial calls of a spotted owl.  There is roughly 30 sec of silence between calls, just as in real life.  It is a thrill to be able to see and hear these birds.  As most owls, they are capable of a mindblowing variation of utterances and vocalizations, and I don’t begin to understand what they might mean.  This call is faintly reminiscent of a neighborhood dog barking in the night, and most people would not be aware that they were listening to an owl.
