Alternately, OP, maybe you could record the bird and post it here.

Your description sounds like a dove of some type, but that's just my guess.

Default OP needs to record and post an audio clip.

Owls like to eat mourning doves; Great Horned Owls will even eat other owls.

The
That fits the call of a great horned owl, the biggest owl in Texas.

As an apex predator, great horned owls call anytime, day or night, but most commonly at dawn and dusk.

Please do not guess. I will ignore guesses at least. If you know what the bird is then I will listen to a sample of it to determine if it is the bird.
I have them in my neighborhood. Listen to the Eurasian Collared Dove.

I heard them, too. The sounds came from the forest at the dawns. But my guess was they were the wild doves. I lived on a Chinese island.

I'd have to hear the specific call. Owls do call thus but doves are similar. But there's differences is tone and duration I would need to actually need to hear. I'm quite familiar with both owls and doves. Have a lot of both herebouts.

Then don't watch the "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" show. Sometimes when they choose the "Ask The Audience" lifeline they say don't guess. Guessing won't work in most game shows either.
