Barred Owl

Sound of a Barred Owl in the forest of mohonk preserve. Great nature sound clip with some other birds in the distance as well. Field recording by Tony Phillips. Recorded at 9am in the morning New Paltz, June 1997 Tony says We stared at each other for about ten minutes. Every so often he would hoot. Each hoot was accompanied by a white flash from his collar as his throat pouch swelled and presumably showed the lighter, lower parts of the feathers.
