Grove of trees near home
An open field is next to a stand of evergreens near our home. One December day near twilight I walked over and stood next to the edge of the trees. I hooted several times and the owl flew out to a tree on the edge of open field, about 40 yards from me. I was amazed it responded to my call! I slowly
walked the hypotenuse to about 50 feet in front of the owl. After taking numerous images, I walked away with the owl watching me. I've tried calling them after that day, but I think they are WISE to me and none have responded.
