For the past week or so I have heard an owl hooting in the Harold O. Bainbridge park during my morning walk. This morning I decided to try and record his hooting. I had to wait a while but finally the hooting began. Perfect!
When I got home I downloaded the file onto my computer and checked the results.
It sounds like a Mourning Dove! Some how the hooting got converted to cooing!!
And, towards the end, check it out...,
is that Raven laughing at me??
I received the following message from my bird authority:
"The mystery bird is an eurasian collared dove. I heard they had been moving into the area there. Not all birders are happy about it-- interlopers, don'tcha know."
