Unknown Bird in Neighbourhood
Hi - I was wondering if someone could identify a bird that is in our neighbourhood and is stumping all of us.
It has a loud call, i.e. three short calls like a referee's whistle and then a "laughing" trail off.
It is medium size and brown - no distinguishable markings that we can see.
It never gets close to us i.e. on the ground, etc., and we only see it high in the trees and flying overhead.
We don't hear it in the winter, only spring - summer time and our neighbourhood is located in Angus, Ontario and backs onto a forest and river.
Nobody seems to know what it is!!
I don't have a photo because it always flies off if you get close to the tree it is perched in.
