My weird, neighborhood, Owl.

So I have this strange owl in my neighborhood. I live across the street from some woods, and this thing that I believe is an owl, makes this weird sound every morning.

Please help me figure it if it is an owl.

First, it lets out this weird war cry that sounds like a loud yelp coming from a hyena, and then it immediately goes into the traditional owl sound of “whoooo-whooo”, and then it stops.

So it sounds almost hyena like with two loud crries, and then two hoots.

Is that an owl, or is it a wild cat or wild dog of some sort, that makes these weird sounds that imitate birds?

We have a feral cat that we adopted who looks like a little tiger or a bobcat, actually, and he makes similar sounds from living in the woods for the first six months of his life, when we first found him, but the difference here is that this animal I hear every morning has the lungs of an owl.

Any wisdom you bitches can impart? TIA!

A rough idea of where you live would help, OP. Living in the mid-atlantic US, my guess would be Barred Owls which live all over the US east of the Mississippi. They make a huge variety of sounds, many of which aren't the "who who" people associate with owls. If you get two barred owls fighting over territory boundaries, they can sound like monkeys or hyenas. Here's a pair arguing. They make many other sounds too, give Youtube a search.

Could it be a mourning dove? This is a sound I heard early every morning throughout childhood and I always thought it was an owl.

OP likely lives in Midsomer, where owls hoot and foxes scream constantly, all night long.

Why would you start a sentence with "So?" Are you retarded?

Your weird, use of, commas.

R10: OP is obviously challenged and stuck somewhere in a time warp, always referring to us as "bitches" in his asinine queries.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
