Notes--deep-toned, startling hoot.
Heard most frequently at nesting time.
Upper parts brown, marked with white--face gray, mottled with black,
wings and tail barred with brown, eyes blue black, bill yellow, under
parts buff marked with darker, legs and feet feathered, bill and claws
dark, hooked, strong.
Feeds on chicken, mice, etc.
Usually take an old crow's or woodpecker's nest for their own
use--rarely make nests for themselves. Nest very early in the season,
young being sometimes ready to fly early in March.
