I’ve been hearing this call outside the farmhouse for a few days but didn’t know what it was.
I took this video when the moon was full (you can see Jupiter also in the video) and used the Merlin app to find out that this is the call of a female Great Horned Owl.
If you listen carefully you can hear another owl answering more faintly from a distance between the two louder calls.

Maria, thanks so much for the owl calls.
So I got the call wrong Eileen. It’s a baby owl asking for food. It’s called a “begging call”
