Unusual bird sound in San Francisco.
For 2 days in a row, my husband and I heard an unfamiliar bird sound. It is loud and striking, sounds like a sea lion and the sound happens two times then there is a break in between. In my mind I am picturing a large bird with a long neck, similar to a Heron. Yet this is happening in the middle of San Francisco in between street blocks. I am about 3 miles from the beach and bay. I did see that there was several Ibis sightings last week. Could that have been it?
I have a video with the sound in the background, but I was unable to spot the bird visually. If anyone wants to hear the video, I can send it! Thanks for your help on this fun mystery!
