This family of owls was recorded in a small Pine grove, bordered to the NW by a highway to the NE by a small field, and to the S by my yard and house. It is unfortunate that this event occured during one of the busiest times of the day for the highway. This family of owls has frequented my yard and surrounding property since we moved here in 1992. In 1992 they had two juveniles, both of whom used the typical 'screech' begging call. This year they have one juvenile who uses this trumpeting or honking begging call. This call was heard from mid-August to mid-October and has since not been heard. The adults have continued to sing to one another throught the fall.
