Great horned owl gives a hoot

I woke up last night when it started to rain. A great horned owl was also hooting in my back yard. December is courting time for great horned owls. If this guy gets lucky, he and a new mate will be incubating eggs before Christmas. Are owls hooting up a storm in your yard? /Gary

    Heard a week ago at 3am in the tall pines in my yard. Wish I heard them more often. I enjoy their “bedtime lullabyes”.

    Me, too. I can just lie there and drift off to sleep on a sea of hoots. The fun begins when you start to hear another owl answering from across the canyon. /Gary
