Camped overnight at cottonwood Creek and heard typical Western Screech-owl call several times during the night. At approximately 0400, I heard this owl giving calls over my camp. Got out and recorded it. Later in morning found 1 adult and 2 juvenal birds. As I was observing juvenile after recording, adult hit me on head as it flew by.
