The Little Owl has at least eight recognised calls, all far-reaching and penetrating. The main two are: a ringing and plaintive ‘kiew’, ‘kiew’, repeated every few seconds and is frequently heard by day. The other is: a loud, rapidly repeated, yelping ‘wherrow’, with the emphasis on the first syllable. At the nest it utters a variety of chattering notes and, during the breeding season, a loud ‘hooo-oo’ note.
