Wildlife next door...

Yesterday when I tried to go to sleep a repetitive noise kept getting my attention and thus kept me awake. As I opened my window the noise turned out to be a piercing bird call coming from a tree in our neighbors yard, not 10 meters away from my bedroom window.

I grabbed my sound recorder and - after hitting several obstacles and throwing the recorder on the floor in the dark - managed to get a pretty decent recording. I might use that in one of my next puppetry videos.

Tonight the bird returned and I grabbed my (I don't know the right word, so I'll go with) night vision device and behold: a little owl perched on the tree and did a high pitched "bawk" every ten to twenty seconds. Had I not seen the shape of the bird, I'd have guessed a falcon or similar bird of prey but it clearly was a small kind of an owl.
