I've be. The funny part is that after he has given only twoiving his opinionen listening to the most fascinating conversation between my local Great Horned Owl pair. They have been quite vocal the last couple of weeks, and I've been hearing them more nights than not. The usual cadence is that one calls, then a few seconds of silence, and then the other calls. Then we have another few seconds of silence and the first one calls, and so on and so forth. I don't know what has changed tonight, but the cadence has. She gives her opinion, and then there's a 7-8 second period of silence, and then the male starts putting his two cents in, but after two hoots, she interrupts and "talks" over him. This has gone on and on like this tonight. I sure wish I knew what the change in their vocalization is. I am relatively certain that it's his fault, otherwise she wouldn't have to interrupt him, right?
Seriously, does anyone out there know what the different vocal patterns of these birds mean? Maybe Mitchell Pruitt?
