While waiting for my favorite Eagle Owl in Germany and Latvia , I am watching Great Horned Owls.
Image
Owl Research Institute ( ORI) makes possible to watch these owls at Osprey nest cam and Great Horned Owl cam, both close to the Institute in Charlo, Montana. ORI webpage provides knowledge about owls in an accessible way https://www.owlresearchinstitute.org/
BTW, Denver Holt, the founder and president of ORI, is the person who conducted research on Snowy Owls in Barrow, Alaska viewtopic.php?f=69&t=112&start=720

I am finally able to distinguish a male and a female by their voices, their calls differ a little.

yes, warning calls. here https://www.xeno-canto.org/434219 more of them - but the bird in your video seems much more upset, almost a bit hysterical ()

Shadow Ridge owls have now two eggs.

There is one more GHO nest to watch, located at Presidio San Francisco National Park at the Golden Gate.

One egg was laid so far. It is originally Red Tailed Hawk nest. Last year RTH couple sucessfully raised there chicks. This year GHO took over this nest and after many tough fights laid the egg. Below you can find videos of these fights by Lady Hawk.
