This recording was changed from "Asio stygius" to "Strigidae" to reflect the uncertainty of the recordist's identification. The identification was based upon hearing a Stygian Owl near this location previously. (See recordist's notes below). The recording was also compared to other archived recordings of this species and was found to be noticeably different. (27Aug2012, Brad Walker.)
Recordist Note: In 1983 (Feb.) we found a Stygian Owl across the Western Highway within a mile or two of this location. (No tape recorder, of course.) The sound in this recording seems to resemble my recollection of the sound the Stygian Owl made at that time.
Recording may have been made on 4/15/84.
