Three types of screech-owl live in North America, according to the National Audubon Society. A common sight east of the Rocky Mountains is the Eastern screech-owl. The Western screech-owl is widespread west of the Rocky Mountains. Limited to a small range of oak woodlands in the Sonoran Desert lives the Whiskered screech-owl. Despite their name, screech-owls do not screech. Their sounds are softer like trills and whinnies.
