I’ll defer to the experts but would not rule out Screech-owl. I’ve heard that 
also: clear descending rather than whinny descending but followed by other EASO 
distinct sounds, so concluded it was the same bird. I’ve been hearing EASO loud 
whinnies just in the last couple of weeks, first time this year, so I guess I 
have a male imoving around checking out the territory or advertising once again.

Dear all,

I hope it's ok to ask for ID help here. Between Sibley and the Lab of O's bird 
call recordings, I haven't been able to get a decent ID on a bird heard last 
night.

The call was a long (1-2 s) descending clear whistle (not a whinny like a 
typical Eastern Screech Owl), starting on a high note and ending quite low. It 
was repeated 3-4 times and then followed by a repeated whistle on a single, 
high note. The timbre was similar to a saw-whet owl, but the tempo was 
different.

It was heard at 1 AM at the border between a field and scrubby forest.

Regards,
Eva
