Bird sound identification needed
I recorded this sound (edited to reduce the gaps between the calls, reduce the background noise, and increase the volume) from the window of my den early ( 5:30 am) one morning.
Can any of the bird experts that frequent this forum identify it for me?
I've been hearing this call frequently in the early morning and occasionally in the day time and evening (although I'm not at home as much during those times). My guess is that it is some kind of owl and since I have never seen, let alone photographed, an owl, I would love to find it (them) and try to get some photos. I've gone searching a couple times in the early morning, but haven't found anything.
If it helps, this is in a residential neighborhood in the San Francisco Bay area.
Thanks for your assistance.
