Likely. I hear them all the time. I hear that ...

"Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you-all?"


play the first couple... those are what I hear the most.

Its always nice, but tough to get a owl. Too bad there's not a good way to lure them to a camera.

I was thinking the same thing. The only things I come up with are suspect cruelty to animals.

Like tie a string around the leg of a mouse with a 3 foot length on the ground so he can dart around and squeak. Point the camera at the mouse.

You can buy a chirping bird on the internet. Put it in a Birdcage and put a larger battery on it. It will chirp all night and will draw owls and other birds and other animals to investigate it thinking it's a free meal. When I had it out I got an owl crawling all over the cage trying to get into it and also raccoons and foxes trying to get it. I can't use it here in the residential neighborhood because it makes too loud a chirp and also draws all the cats around.

I pulled out the chirping bird I have. It still chirps but the motor appears to have bitten the dust and only barely wiggles my bird. Where can I buy a new one ? I had planned to put it out tonight online for everyone to see on the demo camera.
