They definitely do not hoot! This is just one of their many calls. This is a sound we hear often. Barn Owls have the most blood curdling scream, they often sound like this during their examinations, and also, in the wild. They have been recorded at 92 decibels! In no way, was this Barn Owl being hurt, this is a natural defensive call, to try and scare us. If you were to run into a Barn Owl at night in cold dark barn, this is what you would hear!
that's neat and good m8
wow this is frickin re***ed
