Just moved to a new house! We've only been here for four days and we've seen all kinds of cool birds!! Had two owls fly over us tonight. Couldn't tell what they were... hoping someone can tell by the audio in this video that I took. Let me know if you have any ideas. See near Boise, Idaho. Thanks!

I've heard Great Horned juveniles make sounds similar to this...but I'm far from being an owl expert so wait for more input...I'm sure someone will know what it is.  🙂

I was thinking they were Great Horned but I didn't see any ear tufts... it was getting dark and I didn't have any binoculars so it was hard to tell. Hopefully I'll see them again tonight and I'll be prepared this time!

It could be that the ear tufts have not fully developed/emerged yet due to age of the bird. 🙂

Awesome! Thanks everyone. Great Horned was my first thought... I was actually on the phone with my dad when they flew over my head and I said, "Two Great Horned Owls just flew over my head!!!!" but then I started seconding guessing myself when I couldn't see the tufts on their heads.
