    I just nosed around google a bit trying to find a good screech for you, and I discovered that they rarely screech--it is usually to defend its young, in midsummer. Which is exactly when I heard mine. They are all over and their more normal call is a very gentle rumble like a cat purring.
    I love the ones that Whhoooo....don't know which ones they are. Owls are really cool birds and beautiful. Buy a pair of binoculars and let them stay free.

    I wouldn't be able to feed him his live mice anyway. I used to have pet mice too. He'd have to be an outdoor owl and get his own meals.

    I'm sure the owl would be thrilled to be your captive.

    Not.

    All my creatures return to me out of love. Can't say the same about women.

    I've never seen one. Only recently have I seen eagles.

    I have a tall dead pine along the bank behind my house. Every night a great big Owl perches atop it hooting out, riling up the others secreted away in the tree line. I never realized just how huge she really was; till she spread her wings, and silently swooped down to pluck an unsuspecting mouse from the meadow. A truly incredible animal...

    I friend of mine rescued an owl, and nursed it back to health. I forget what kind. However, the owl remained his pet from then on, and never tried to fly away even though it could. It was a very good pet.
