Wildlife biologist Sean Grace parks his car along a lonely stretch of road near East Amwell. Nothing makes a sound in the cold night air. All that's audible is the faint whoosh of traffic far off. The nature educator whistles into the woods,awaits a reply

When I lived in extreme Northern NJ, I used to love watching the owls come out at dusk, the same for the bats. Each had their eye on different prey. It was fascinating to watch.

There's audio on the site - and the owls do make a lovely sound.

I really love owls... I think they're fascinating creatures. Living in the country, we'd always hear the little barn owls at night and it made us feel like all was at peace with the world. The only owl I ever had a problem with was a great horned owl [that by the way, was darned near as big as I was] who cut the throats of about a hundred of my young pullets, then had the nerve to stand there and stare at me when I caught him in the act.

I love standing in a salt marsh along New Jersey's Delaware Bay shore and watching short-eared owls hunt just before dusk. They usually put on a great show.
