Cornell Lab offers owl sounds for Halloween
What a hoot!
You can download eight owl calls from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website.
Just log on and sign in to download the vocalizations of the great horned owl, Eastern screech-owl, Western screech-owl, long-eared owl, short-eared owl, snowy owl, barn owl and barred owl. Listening to these calls can help birders recognize these species that are often heard but not seen.
My personal favorite is the great horned owl duet!
The owl sounds can also be used as ringtones if your device accepts MP3s (although you must download them to your computer before you can play them on your phone).
To download, go to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
Look for the above banner.
