PLEASE FEED ME!: Closeup soundscape portrait of an immature Great Horned Owl sounding off at night next to the Sabinal River at Lost Maples State Nature Area in the Hill Country of Texas. Recorded by Lang Elliott, 2am, 8 March 2017.
The youngster's gruff, throaty calls keep the parents informed of its whereabouts. The young owl is full-sized at this point, though still unable to feed on its own. Listen carefully and you'll hear the youngster fly to a different perch near the end of the recording, followed by distant calls.
