Last year the Great Horned Owls were hanging out under the Leimert Bridge and babies were seen.
This time of year there are territory claim vocalizations being made and a month or so later we will hear courtship behaviors. Some lovely duets can be heard in the winter.
We are lucky to have this wonderful species that live adjacent to our human population.
This is what preserving habitat is all about!

Usually one longer hoot is followed by two shorter ones. The frequency of calls is tapering off a little now, but we still hear a call at least every thirty minutes or so.
