Reader question

A reader writes:

We live near Santa Cruz, California in a meadow, surrounded by Riparian
Zone/Creek and Redwoods. At night we hear a loud, lonely sounding ?bird,
almost loon like or a loud very long hoot. We are wondering what it might
be. Do you have any ideas?

Any ideas?

  1. I too live near Santa Cruz -- up in the redwoods. I would guess an owl of some kind. There is a very active birding group and mailing list in Santa Cruz. You can visit the Santa Cruz Bird Club at . . .
