[CT Birds] Great Horned Owl in Fairfield

I've been hearing a Great Horned Owl calling in a friends backyard in Fairfield. Recently, he told me he heard two owls calling back and forth. The yard butts up against some rock formations, a floodplain and a river. What are the chances they will nest back there? I've read they don't make a nest but I suspect the rock formations, which have some cave-like openings, have attracted them to the area. I have yet to actually see the Owl.
