BirdNote: Owl Duet

Print More

The 22-inch Great Horned Owl has two tufts of feathers that stick up from the top of its head.

This owl is difficult to see, but it’s often heard during dark winter evenings and pre-dawn mornings.

A pair of owls may call back and forth or overlap their hoots.

The male’s call is slightly lower in pitch. Listen for the owl’s night-time refrain, "Who’s awake? Me, too."
