Short-eared Owl - Asio flammeus

This rather quiet owl has a small vocabulary. It certainly lacks the rich variety of the long-eared owl. In spring, when threatened, male utters a yapping ‘chef-chef’. During courtship the male utters a low-pitched ‘voo-hoo-hoo-hoo’ or ‘boo-boo-boo’.

Song
Of the male is an 8-12 syllable ‘bu-bu-bu’.
