Last night was a hoot!

LOL.
In the evening I could hear 2 great horned owls talking to each other. Then, in the middle of the night I kept hearing a barred owl. :)

It's nice that you could tell the difference between the two! You must live near heavy woods.

Hi surya,

Yes, we have about 35 acres and alot of it is wooded. We love it! Last night the barred owl hooted all night again. I hope that means it might be planning on nesting around here. And if the Great Horned owls nest around here too, I hope they can get along!

Wonderful! You get both worlds- peace/quiet and then the nearby towns/villages.

I love listening to Great Horned Owls. Just the other night, one was on our chimney calling. We were watching TV and our dog was so confused. You are really lucky to have so much land. We have only a small California style back yard.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I'm thankful every second for what we have. I just hope it isn't overrun with "growth and development" that everyone around thinks is so good.
But for now.........we have a place for the animals who have lost their habitat, and it makes me really happy. :)
