Sounds a bit like a Common Nighthawk.

Subject: [Tweeters] Unknown night birds

Hi Tweeters,.

My husband and I were walking in our Issaquah Highlands neighborhood about 9:45 p.m. last night and heard these bird sounds— I guess I’d call them whistle-like shrieks. Here are links to the sound files:

Eventually we saw two of them fly overhead. They were large-ish with wide wings that appeared light gray underneath with darker gray leading and trailing edges. Wish I could include a sketch. I hope the sound files come through. We heard them again tonight.
