Two owls identified by sound when outside grilling dinner

Submitted from eBird for iOS, version 1.9.18

Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: Calling at distance toward the end of the point where we had heard them in years past. Characteristic “Who Cooks for You”

  2. Number observed: 1

    Details: Stepped out on deck to grill when I heard a loud screech about 50 feet away. For the next half hour my wife and I followed the bird as it called ever 30 to 60 seconds. At tmes it was barely audible as it moved away and then close again. We came inside and played several owl vocalization ... ruling out Saw-whet screech (too high), and Barred, Long-Eared and Two Screech (not even close). We went outside and played a Short-eared Vocalization and the bird in question immediately returned and called loudly. Called it a Birding night and came inside for dinner. Lifer
