Screeching Great Horned Owls
We’ve lived in southern Oregon in a wooded area and have listened to the regular hooting of these owls for years. But for the first time this year, beginning about June, there is only the screeching of owls, no deep hoots. From what I’ve read already, these could be juveniles begging for food or some adults defending their territory?
We’re wondering why only screeching and no deep hoots? Their behavior has definitely changed this year. Thanks!!
