Hi Eric and NEbirders, Your mystery species sounds like an Eastern Screech-Owl. The descending trill seems like a good fit for this species. Is the wee-du vocalization somewhat of a wavering whinny? If so, you have a Screech-Owl. They are present in the Omaha area, but have been declining in the past few years. Good birding. Justin RinkMidtown OmahaDouglas Co., <NEspindalis79...>

The last couple nights I've had a persistent night caller behind the house.Â 1 second loud, persistent descending trills, with occasional interspersed loud WEEduÂ WEEdu WEEdu.Â Any ideas out there?
Also, a brant specimen was collected on the Missouri River yesterday in Burt County.Â Photo posted in my yahoo folder.
