That is quite a racket! A different scale entirely to the gentle calls I sometimes hear from tawny owls near me.

For us, the reaction is similar to the woman recording the video. Itis fun to hear the parties when they happen!  :lol:
They occasionally happen at 3:00 AM.  :nowink: , but usually don't last more than a few minutes, and it isn't a nightly thing.  Big parties seem to include multiple groups within earshot of each other, like the video shows.

All in all, we love our barred owls, and we have loads of them. Great rodent control BTW.

Some of you may know that the Nutchatch is not yet common in Scotland but is spreading Northwards from England. We have seen them sometimes over the past few years in South Ayrshire rummaging in crevices of our mature trees and sneaking round the back of the trunks if they think we have spotted them.

Apparently nobody told this juvenile that they are supposed to be shy birds. It has been searching our decking for sunflower seeds that have fallen between the boards and got wedged. It has a better beak than the small birds and has been helping itself.

This was one juvenile but I placed two images of it side by side. It was only about five feet away from me through the window!

I love nuthatches. I have both a Quail and an old Beswick in my collection of birds. Would love to see one in the flesh so's to speak.
I work very hard so don't expect me to think as well.

Watch out for the con men
