I've been hearing Screech Owls calling in my yard lately as well but its
been at dusk. They're shortening their usual "whinny" call here too. They're
probably displaying courting behavior.

Subject: [CT Birds] screech owl?

The past 2 mornings, at about 6am when I am walking the dogs, I have heard
what sounds a lot like a Screech Owl's "tremelo" type sound but it doesn't
last as long as I have normally heard it.  Is there something else that
makes a similar noise?  I have never heard a screech owl when it was light
out but I know they are around in this area.

I am also still hearing white-throated sparrows.
