is there anyone out there I can send my recording to to identify this bird?
Hello. This morning, a clear 35 degrees or so in Portland, Oregon, I heard and recorded a very loud bird call from the small woods behind my house -- the bird must be large! I thought it might be a heron, but when I listened to recordings of herons I found online, it didn't seem to match. I recorded the sound by making a short video of nothing, just to capture the audio. I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who would be willing to listen and to try to identify what bird made this sound? Thanks!
