Long eared Owlet Calling Video. As Requested!


Long-eared owlet calling from Hawthorn

This is the video I took of the Long-eared Owlet calling. Please note that it is almost dark, and that the Owl is perched in a very thick dark Hawthorn bush, therefore the EOS 7D is cranked up to its highest possible ISO setting, meaning that the picture quality is nothing but awful, but the audio I thought was just perfect.

What a great sound. Do they have just one a year?

Super sound, super birds.

Have a peek at my blog header Chris - one of our local photographers has just taken some great images of juvvy Leos.

Hi Steve. Thanks for the comment. Will do on my way now.

Mary. No this is one of 2 from an original 4 owlets. Both of these are now very strong, flying very well, so should not have any problems.
