Pearl Spotted Owl In Residence At Sedia Hotel

Actually, it could well be a pair of Pearl Spotted Owls. These 7 or 8 inch wonders can sing up some beautiful sounds - described as a series of long lilting tu-tu-tu's. They tend to like starlite nights for their singing forays.

The Pearl Spotted Owl is described as earless. In discussions with Jon Dalsegg, a birder of note himself, he informs me they actually have assymetrical ears, it is just that they are pronounced.

Regardless, while visiting Sedia Riverside Hotel, listen for them late afternoon and on moonlite evening. The photo is from Flickr - I have yet to see one live, let alone get a phote like this.
