Wonder if any of the zoos feed them natural foods where you could get a few. Kids do enjoy that sort of thing until someone spoils it with their ewwwwwwwwes.

Quiet Man:
It's only a problem to play recorded calls during breeding season when they need to stay focused on successfully raising young. You should be able to "talk" to them at other times as long as you don't do it for more than a few minutes. I can't wait to see your photos!

This thread is too fun. My poor, put upon boyfriend tapes concerts and don't think I haven't had him set up all his taper gear to record owls so I can id later. We end up with tall mic stands in the yard...some days I think the beau wants to get married (after "dating" 25 years) just so he can divorce me. He thinks I am a wing nut but loves to record, so it works. Very glad to know there are other wing nuts recording birds out there.

I envy the photography efforts. Requires a lot of knowledge (I lack completely) and owls aren't easy to pinpoint.

Gosh you guys--you make me wish I were a wing nut! I am just a garden variety nut. How cool it would be to be able to record owls.

I'm impressed. I don't have any recordings at all, so yours is much more exotic than mine.

I have recordings of most of the birds of the eastern united states loaded onto my ipod. It can really help out with identification when you're not quite sure what you saw. On the other hand it also helps announce my wing nuttiness to unsuspecting fellow workers when a song is followed by a bird twittering. One of these days I'll remember to move all my music to one playlist and the birdcalls to another...that way when I hit my shuffle button on the ipod I don't get my birdjams list included. Until then I'll continue to listen to Born Free followed by a great horned owls screeches....

ahhh, now I get the part of the unsuspecting fellow workers - not all of your calls are soft little chirps. A screech of any type is usually unnerving in the workplace.

A peacock call is the best imitation I can do.
They are quite soothing to listen to also............ NOT

"I have recordings of most of the birds of the eastern united states loaded onto my ipod." I never was interested in one of those iPods before but could it be loaded with plant photos?
