I believe you are right. Here is one of my oft used sites for IDs.

I did not mean to suggest we only had great horned owls here, in fact we have a wide range of owls but most often I see signs of their presence or hear them at night. As a kid we had a family of barn owls living in one of our silos---they perched on the top ring right above the ladder---it made going up to throw silage down hazardous duty

Commonly I find pellets around the base of a nesting tree---look close and you will find out what they are living on
