Agreed- sounds exactly like recently fledged Barred Owls. We have them nesting in our wet woods for many years and the fledglings are quite vocal right now just as you described.

> We live in the swampy woods of mid Madison. 8 years. I feel I know every sound out there. Tonight, at dusk, I hear something that has me stumped. At first, there was a single ascending "screeeeee." High pitched squeek, thin with a slight rasp. Every 30 seconds. As darkness fell there were multiple vocalers. Ended by 9:30.
