    Awesome work Sharon!
    One of the first “strange” sounds I encountered in the woods was the screech owl. Once I discovered what It was, that little guy became my new best friend. I absolutely love hearing their calls and looking at the surprise on someone’s face when you explain that those “scary noises” they are hearing are coming from a pint size creature.
    Careful climbing that ladder 🙂

      Thanks for sharing Bill! It is amazing that such a small creature can make such an eerie noise that sparks fear in so many people. Glad you enjoy the sound too!
