Mystery animal sound! (Solved: Juvenile Barred Owl)

Get this sound with YouTube MP3jam
Here is a nighttime recording that includes a couple of insect sounds plus a new animal call or cry that I've never heard before. It happens twice -- at :06 and :20. The creature was calling for about 20 minutes and then moved away from our house and kept calling and then came back. SOLVED: JUVENILE BARRED OWL! A few nights later we saw several owls flying around in our trees and a couple were making this sound but other regular Barred calls were happening. Then we found a Juvenile sample and made the ID. In the meantime, an expert birder told us it was NOT a Barred, but we all learned something!
