What Flavor Owl ??
Ever since I've lived here I've been hearing what I believe to be Owls hooting in the big Oak trees in my yard. Really loud and different to any I've heard before. Picture a very large, loud Parrot trying to imitate a Dove.....Hoh hoh hoh hooo hoooaaawww, very loud, very sharp.. Sometimes 2 or more will get together and the noise is amazing. Never have gotten a look at them.
Today I was walking my Dog in a semi-cleared area 1/2 mile away and heard 2 of them again. These were up in one of the huge Pecan trees there and I saw one move, so snuck around for a better look. Light was from the right side and 3/4 behind it, so exposure was difficult. I shot at a high telephoto setting from about 100 ft away and cropped the shot heavily. This shot took a lot of editing to show anything. I'd guess it's 8 or 10 inches tall.
Does anyone know what type of Owl this is ??
