Quietman, I love your owl project.

When I first moved to the country a few years ago, I heard screech owls for the first time in my life. I was astounded to learn that they do not screech. They have a lovely, gentle trill to their call. I would hear them at dusk calling to each other from the woods at the edge of my field, in the spring especially. I did not know what it was and had to look it up in the internet. I still have not seen one and can hardly wait to see the photos from your project.

There is an enormous barn owl that lives nearby who I have seen twice and hear at night from time to time. His wing span must be nearly as wide as I am tall. He is amazing.

I have not read up on the ethics of owl calling yet, but I know that you will do the right thing by the owls. You obviously care about them.
