Eastern Screech-Owl (Megascops asio), Somerset, Massachusetts, Thursday, October 6, 2011, 5:00 PM, Canon PowerShot SX130 IS MVI_24469; 5:30 min.


I think this gray phase eastern screech owl is trying to do its monotonous trill call but it's coming out scratchy. In the end it does the eastern screech owl whinny.

This bird is imprinted on humans and is an education bird at the University of Minnesota's Raptor Center. Please visit if you ever find yourself in St. Paul, MN!

Eastern Screech Owl Camouflage and Defensive Techniques - A Mini-Documentary. YouTube videos of a White-faced Scops-Owl "performing" by being frightened (i.e. abused) into changing it's appearance on a Japanese TV show for laughs led to names such as Transformer Owl, Evil Owl, Dracula Owl etc. In fact, many small owls use "Concealing Postures" or the German word "Tarnstellung" to survive in a very hostile world.

Screech Owl Calls and Courtship continues at 2 AM with a nice big bug delivered by Mr. Owl. The male actually landed on the camera and the female seems to take her time with the bug until eating it just at the end.

This video was captured during the incubation phase between a male & female eastern screech owl. The male will come into the box mostly during a feeding event. This preening session will go on for 3-5 minutes and they do this several times a night. Video captured from the PixController live streaming screech owl webcam system.


Male eastern screech owl has been sitting in oak tree near the nest box with mother and 3 owlets inside all day. After feeding himself and his family all night he has been sitting in the tree since dawn and needs to remove the digested material from the night before so he can feed again. He regurgitates the pellet prior to dusk and is good to go for the night. More on this owl family at: http://screech-owls.blogspot.com/
