Mon, 30 Jul 2007 -- 04:02 A LONG-EARED OWL woke me out of a deep sleep.
Less than 100 yads away - probably in the oaks behind the house. It gave
about 10 hoots in the full moonlight. 04:16 Seven more hoots. About 200
yards to the east. 04:27 Five hoots about 1/4 mile to the east now. 04:29
Five more hoots from about the same area. 04:32 Five more hoots. The last
I heard. No going back to sleep for me.
I'd been expecting this guy eventually; several years ago I heard one
at sunset about 1/2 mile to the west.
