Usambara Eagle-Owl - Bubo vosseleri Jasson John 2018-10-30 Amani Mountain Reserve, Tanga, Tanga (Tanzania) (900 m) call -

Slightly modified (low-pass filter, 1.5kHz, and roll-off dB per octate, 12dB). I could see the bird, but heard it from my room and went out to record it, the bird was calling from a forest canopy close the Amani Nature Reserve HQ.

Usambara Eagle-Owl - Bubo vosseleri Louis A. Hansen 2019-07-11 Suni camp, Chita Forest, southern Udzungwa Scarp, Iringa (pre-2012) (Tanzania) (1502 m) song -

Woke at ca 2245 hrs and heard this magic large size owl – despite sleepy I was not in doubt which species it was. Fumbled around in the dark tent and started recording from within the tent. The eagle owl called for 1h and 46min! But at some point, I must have fallen asleep again as after 52 min I started, rather unexpected began to snore! Therefore, I have removed all those short bursts of heavy breathing, but apart from that the recording is unaltered – though a small increase in volume has also been applied. There are some differences in spacing btw sound phrases e.g. 2min, 5min, 6min and 3 min.

Bird in low voice and at distance. Substantially audio-edited to bring to the fore. Recorded from outside my tent, now with some notion of direction of the sound.

Timing is approximate. My notebook of that trip (trauma, trauma) was lost back then with luggage.
