Screech-Owl call question.

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to spot some local Screech-Owls for some time - very elusive.

However, I do hear a call identical to the first one on this link regularly when I arrive at a specific location, quite brief and then the bird will not repeat it for me to get a recording (I go away and come back but nothing).

My question is "how specific is this call and is there anything that is similar?" This is a wetland area where Herons, Egrets, Rails (a similar story) hang out - I did a quick check of their calls and did not find a match but I thought one or more of the Rails had a "whinny call".

Thanks.

Thanks Connor - there is a Sora in the vicinity, however I had checked the call and it does not match, quite different.

If there are no other suggestions that is fine as I now know where to keep an eye out for the owl. It has been reported a few times previously in the more general location but I would like to get a photo if possible.

Thanks again.
