Hi folks,

Hope everyone is having a good spring season. I wanted to run the attached call 
by this list before making a definitive statement about it .. to me this sounds 
like a perfect match for Barn Owl. The reason I hesitate is two-fold: first, I 
have no personal experience with this species’ NFC, and second, it is an 
extremely rare species in my area (southwestern Pennsylvania). The clip is 30 
seconds long and the bird calls at around 3 seconds and at 28 seconds. These 
are two of four calls in the series. The two calls not included are much 
fainter and on either side of the two in the attached recording, in other 
words, this seemed pretty clearly to be a bird on the move and not some local 
animal near the microphone making a screeching sound.

The attachment is about 1.3 MB so I hope it goes through, per the Lyris upgrade 
that Chris mentioned earlier this year.

Best regards, and good listening.
