      I try to find a tropical screech owl or a barn owl, but i can´t. Do you know how to find them?

    • Finding owls is a topic discussed in our Bird Academy course: The Wonderful World of Owls Here are a few tips from the course: Owl-Finding Tips Sounds, as well as sights, can be important for locating owls. Learn the songs and calls of your local owls; listen for them at dusk and into early night. Learn the habitat each owl likes. Watch the ground for accumulations of pellets. Watch for whitewash on tree trunks and on the ground. Listen for mobbing birds. A group of smaller birds might make a racket if they find an owl or another bird of prey, a behavior called mobbing. If you hear an avian cacophony in the woods, you might want to trace it; at the center could be an owl! Give birds plenty of space. Work with your local birding club to go owling. By working together as a group with experts, you have a better chance of both finding a bird, and engaging with it responsibly. Learn what an owl looks like when it’s stressed. If you see an owl puff up its body, make itself super skinny, or rock back and forth, you may be stressing it, meaning it’s time to back off or leave the area entirely.
