Moved from the wateringhole - Owls

What about bats, there must be more bats flying around than nightjars. Has anyone seen bats flying around there?

I can't tell if the African wood owl is even supposed to be here, this may be a bit too far south.

I heard and recorded what sounded like a duet between two owls. There was a closeby hoot, then in the distance a complex multi-syllable reply, and with some regularity. I have no idea what was making the single hoot, but the replay sounded to me what was a African wood owl.. I got that from owlpages.com...thx to whoever posted that page.

Sounds like it could have been a male courting a female (?), if that was the sound you heard. Two distinctly different calls.

I can't tell if the African wood owl is even supposed to be here, this may be a bit too far south. I have the duet recorded, and if I ever figure out how to post it I will.
PS ..I think tonights mystery owl sounded like the typical male call, Good night
