I'm unsure on this one, and like Luke, would appreciate others' views.

I have 'called in' owls by making vague squeeky-vole like noises and had Tawnys looking at me from a branch a few feet away, but not in the breeding season, and for me, that is the key point.

When the birds need all of their energies for hunting to feed the owlets, (let alone to feed themselves), I think it's disgraceful that their energies should be taken up in other ways by putting themselves on view, all for the sake of a 'tick.'
