Macramé Owl language can be a challenge to learn and decipher. Even scientists who study the Macramé Owl often are unable to make a clear distinction between a Macramé Owl Call and a Macramé Owl Hoot. Here, we endeavour to make this job easier.
Macramé Owl Calls
Macramé Owl calls are voiced when a Macramé Owl is seeking attention. It is sending out a signal that it wants to engage in a conversation. There is a special and particular message that it wants to convey. It wants to be heard and it is seeking a reply.
Macramé Owl Hoots
Conversely, a Macramé Owl hoot is voiced when the Macramé Owl is rambling, complaining, or just plain bored. It has no interest or investment in a conversation. It is merely exercising its vocal chords, or ‘babbling’.
Click on the call or hoot name to listen to it.
Mating call: hoo-hoo-HOOOO
This call may be voiced for a long time and progressively increases in volume, as the Macramé Owl loses patience for its mating partner to respond.
Hungry natter: tut-tut-tut-tut-tut
This call is voiced by younger Macramé Owls to ask for a feeding.
Chagrinned hoot: trill… cawh
This hoot is voiced when a Macramé Owl was hopeful about something (trill), but then became quickly disillusioned (cawh). For example, if it received no response to the mating call, it would later be voicing a chagrinned hoot.
Squawk: rap-rap-rap raaaar
This is a common attention-seeking Macramé Owl hoot.
