Awsome , the reason I asked was because I hear Barred and Great-Horned in my back yard a few times a year and have a devil of a time trying to see them. I bought a pair of night vision bins a few years ago - and they were like 400 dollors ! Sometimes I go steathly running out to my deck and look for eye shine , but I get nothing. a few nights ago I tried to make a Great-Horned call , there was a racoon near my deck - and he started with a cranky growl, needless to say he wasn't cool with it. lol. Any suggestions on getting a visual ?

Get lucky. That's pretty much all I did. I've only seen two in my life, and both just happened to be there at the same time I was. I can say that both barred owl sightings were in broad daylight, and near water. I've read somewhere that barred owls will investigate imitations of their calls. I've tried that, and it may have worked on the one I saw last year, but the one I saw this year completely ignored me. You might have better luck with them than the great horned.

Ok I am practicing -" WHoo khooks Fhoor yooh, WHoo Khooks Fhoor Yhoooh aaahhhalllll.... " LOL - Cranky racky again. Thank you for the advice though. I get alot of flying squirrels raiding my feeders , and I love the little guys. But I am dying to see an Owl back there . I wish the owls would pluck the damn cat that frequents my property. That is an awsome list by the way.
