Calling the Great Horned Owl

The article about Great Horned Owls said they have such keen hearing they can hear a mouse rustle the grass at 1/4 a mile. It also said that a GHOwl will respond to a recorded owl hoot, or a good imitation.

So the other morning, as I was watching the nest through binoculars, I gave a trial, "oot oot" and sure enough, the owl lifted her head and looked right down at me.

I don't want to wear that out, but I am going to try again from time to time.
