Hi Bonnie,

Definitely juvenile Great Horned Owls. I have them in my backyard in
Manzanita and have seen them making these calls.

Here's a Sound Cloud recording I did one night of several calling back and
forth. It gets louder towards the end (at 1:54 on the tape) as the owl was
right above me about 10 feet away.

Nice that you could hear them.

Best, Beverly
