  • Juvenile Great-horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) begging call

    July 23, 2007, hunting for owls above Nevada City, CA I heard this raspy, screechy noise near Rock Creek.  The time was twenty minutes before midnight.  I was perplexed by the call, but figured it might be an owl of some kind and recorded it.  Doing some research afterward I found out that this is a begging call for the great-horned owl.  Another mystery night sound solved.

    This file is 00:01:08 long and contains four calls.  Background is running water and crickets.
