Last night as I was reading in bed I heard an owl outside my house, pretty close by.
A couple of minutes later I heard it again to the north, near the Tree Farm.
Suddenly I heard it again near the house and realizied it was two owls!
They hooted back and forth in a 5 hoot pattern (whowhowho-whowho) several times.
I'm not sure what kind they were.
There is a pack of coyotes that spend several nights a month in the Tree Farm, we can hear them howling at night.
This is another reason why we keep our cats inside at all times.
