I remember tales of the tape recording of a Spotted Owl bringing it both a
Spotted Owl and a Great Horned. Same for Screech and Great Horned. Perhaps
Barred Owl has also been an attracted, documented predator. Do any of you know
if this is more than urban legend? It makes sense, and I wouldn't want to be
the one with my finger on the playback button when it happens.

It also seems that putting a million candlepower spot light in an owl's eyes
might have some negative effects. I wonder if this has been researched.
