East River Preserve, Guilford, woods just north of large field near bridge by Half Mile Rd. Heard a single owl vocalizing, immediately struck me as Boreal owl. Stacatto toots in rapid succession, seemingly more staccato, less trilled than Eastern Screech-Owl. Primarily deciduous woods with a fee conifers. Im playing playback of both species with no response as of yet.
Just want to get the word out. Not really sure what to make of what I heard. Sounded absolutely spot on for Boreal. Obviously Eastern Screech is more likely.
