Night in the Swamp

Since midnight I've been listening to a pair of Barred Owls performing a frenzied duet across the road. These owls have to be the most talkative I've ever heard, vocalizing constantly. Their cacophony might have involved more than two birds, I couldn't be sure how many I was hearing over the traffic noise. In addition to the typical Barred Owl call (usually described in the form of a question, as who-cooks-for-you, who-cooks-for-you-all?) I heard some rising shrieks and deranged kookaburra-like cackling. Very cool!

Not much other news to tell.
