Imitating Screech Owls

Eastern Screech Owls are fairly easy to imitate, and the do readily respond to imitation calls, However, it does NOT seem to attract them to a box. Whatever reason the Owl responds to the imitation, it doesn’t seem to make a Box any more (or less) attractive. So I would recommend to use sparingly, its is good to ‘see’ if screech owls are around the area, but may be detrimental if over used.
Two skills are needed,
1) gargling, well more like imitating the sound of a dentist suction hose
2) whistling, combine the whistling with the suction house gargle, and viola just need to get the pitch right…the descending ‘whinny’ or the monotone ‘bounce’
