Barred Owl, Sounds, All About Birds – Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Do Barred Owls live in Arkansas? More specifically, Little Rock, Arkansas? More specifically, Midtown, Little Rock, Arkansas? The weirdest sounding creature flew over our house last night around 9pm. I heard it down the street and thought it was maybe a puppy whining and yelping. Then it went right over the house. My son heard it too in his room. “Mom? Dad? What was that?”
So, this page has some recordings of Barred Owls captured in Arkansas in 2005. And yes, this is kind of what I heard last night. Whether or not we have one cruising around our neighborhood remains to be seen. Or, rather, heard. We’ll see/hear what tonight brings.
