Female Great Horned Owl Leaves Nest At Dawn, Squawking Loudly

The female Great Horned Owl incubates the eggs alone until hatch. The male owl provides her with prey during this time. In this clip, she begins "squawking", which is a food solicitation call to the male, then flies off. You can continue to hear her squawking in the background (and him hooting) while the eggs are untended. Nearby, a Northern Cardinal sings near-continously in the foreground, American Crows caw in the distance, and a Carolina Wren sings below. She returns soon after first light and settles in for another day of incubation.

Savannah Great Horned Owls Hooting During Incubation

While the male Great Horned Owl has not been seen on camera since eggs were laid, in this short clip from the early morning you can hear him heard hooting softly in the distance. She responds quietly while a chorus of Blue Jays, Eastern Bluebirds, and Brown-headed Nuthatches noisily scolds off-camera.
