I posted a looooong time ago about hearing an owl outside our window (rare considering we live in a suburban neighborhood, I thought).  Well late last night I heard it again.  Loud.  But then it was followed by a (louder) squawk.  Instead of “WHO”, it was more like “KRAWW-OH?”.  A baby!  It had to be a baby!  I think it was playing on our playstructure as loud as he/she was.  I tried peeking out the window, but it was too dark to see anything.

Anyway, I can put up with owls hooting outside my window, even squawky baby owls. Hearing the baby actually made me smile!
