3. Owls In West Virginia: 9 Species To Watch Out For!

With tourism as its leading industry, it’s no wonder that people flock from all over North America to West Virginia. Many species of birds also love West Virginia for its magical mountain topography and dense foliage.
Nine types of owls call West Virginia home. From the majestic Snowy Owl to the everyday Barn Owl, the variety of species is worth the trip to the Eastern mountainous state.

Owls In West Virginia:

Northern Hawk Owl

Snowy Owl

Barred Owl

Great Horned Owl

Eastern Screech Owl

Northern Saw-Whet Owl

Short-Eared Owl

Long-Eared Owl

Barn Owl

If you’ve ever seen yellow eyes glowing in the middle of the night, you’ve probably seen an owl. However, owls aren’t all nocturnal, nor are they always scary.

Some owls roam the skies in broad daylight. There’s also the Snowy Owl, with its magnificently white feathers that make it look more like a proverbial dove of peach than an owl.

Nevertheless, there are owls you should be wary of, like the Great-Horned Owl, an efficient hunter famous for its attacks on humans.

4. Great Horned Owl hoot

At dusk, a Great Horned Owl emerged from its day roost in a large conifer, gave a wake-up hoot, then flew to a nearby tree, along with its mate. The pair proceeded to serenade our group with their duets for several minutes.

5. How to find owls

I got my start owling in 2020 when I was an Allegheny County park ranger. I led owl prowls and started to get out into the field when I was off the clock to look for owls. I became enthralled with them and it became a passion to learn more about their hidden lives. I hope it brings the same joy for you that it brings for me.

I have used info collected for the ranger "owl prowls" as well as my own research to help give you the confidence to start trying to find owls. Good luck!

14. Barred Owl Calls To Mate (Amazing Vocals!)

A female barred owl calls to her mate after leaving the nest briefly to stretch her legs. This barred owl call, which mimics "who cooks for you, who cooks for you, all" is the most common barred owl call.
Click here for more cool barred owl videos: youtu.be/frVz4K4QiKM

This is not a barred owl mating call, but is an owl call (or owl sounds) for communicating to other owls, or in this case, her barred owl mate. If you listen closely, you can hear the male barred owl call back.

Barred owls use a variety of different sounds and calls to communicate. The barred owl call featured here is the most recognizable of the bunch. Barred owls may be best known for their unique vocalizations, especially the unmistakable nine-noted hoot that is often translated to sound like, "Who cooks for you? Who cooks for you all?" Besides that catchy call, these owls can be heard shrieking, crying, trilling, grumbling, and squeaking, especially during courtship. Sound exciting? It is! A pair of courting owls is certainly a sound to behold! The forest comes alive with the male's chimpanzee-like calls and the females' higher pitched responses.

15. The Distinctive Calls of Owls: A Sampler

Most owls are nocturnal, and they use their voices to establish territories and attract mates in the dark. Several species begin nesting during as early as midwinter, which is one reason why you can often hear them in fall and winter, when most other birds are quiet.
