Owls breed in the winter, so in fall they are beginning the courtship and at night you may well hear the hooting of the great horned owl. Great horned owls are monogamous and the hooting between a pair of breeding adults strengthens their bond as well as warding off other owls who may wish to claim their territory. The male’s call is a lower, deeper voice, and the female’s a higher pitch. Often the two will hoot over one another and the calls may go on for hours.
