1/3/19, just after dark, I heard classic "Who cooks..." calls from deeper voiced bird, presumably male, with occasional high-pitched, rising "whoops" from a different bird. Then the higher-pitched Who cooks calls began, overlapping with the deeper ones.
The birds were very close to the house, though unseen in the dark. The only other time I have heard the species here to be sure of was 9/26/17, though some of the odd barks and other inexplicable noises I had heard during daylight were probably the owls too.
This is nothing chaseable, but wanted to share FYI anyway.
