Hoot Hoot - Not 1 but 2 Owls on Our Roof

Hoot Hoot - Not 1 but 2 Owls on the Roof

 

 

We had a wonderful owl experience tonight at our house in Carlsbad, although the photo is not great.

 

We have been hearing the Great Horned Owls daily for weeks, but don't see them.

 

This evening, as it was getting dark, I heard an owl that sounded really close. I went out to the back patio and saw it up on the chimney - clear as day. He, or she, was calling to another one nearby, who was hooting back.

 

Luckily, I was able to sneak back in and grab my phone. More amazingly, whenI got back outside the second owl showed up and we were treated to a fun conversation between the 2, for about a minute, before they flew off. The video quality is not the best, but nature sure is wonderful, isn't it!

How cool is that, Jeff! I'm not a "bird person," but I do have a connection with owls as the owl is the symbol of my sorority, Chi Omega. So I actually do have a gold owl on my charm bracelet.

You should have invited them in to have a glass of wine with you and gotten to know them a little better, haha.

What an awesome capture. A real treat. Bet it was awesome to be there and experience it up close.

Jeff owls are one bird I do not see around here, but I hear them at times.  Would love to see one in my backyard sometime.

Hi James Dray 

They really are fun to see in nature. Too bad the quality was not all that great.

My iPhone is pretty good with the sound, although the photo and video quality is not all that great sometimes...depends on the light. Anyhow, we were glad to have been treated by the owls’ visit.

I do as well, at least most of it, Kat Palmiotti 

 

Brian England  I think they were having their own social time!

Sharon Lee  I'm so thankful I went out to see if they were close by. If not, we would have missed them completely.

This is only about the 3rd time since living here that we have seen them in person, and seeing 2, and up close, was pretty cool.
