I’ve been enjoying the distinctive trill of the Eastern Screech Owl in my pine woods this summer. Almost every night, its clear back-and-forth communication with its mate resonates first on the mountain side of the house and then on the river side. The sound seemed spooky as a child and used to terrify me, but now it’s like music!
How glad I am this morning to find that April Moore has featured this bird in her wonderful Earth Connection blog, and after reading it, I feel I’ve come to know this small owl a lot better. Head on over to April’s blog and enjoy her post:
If you aren’t famliar with the call of the Eastern Screech Owl, here it is on YouTube. I bet you’ll recognize it:
