Whatever it is, I have not heard one for quite a while.

Owl calls are quite distinctive. Unlike doves the call will bring the hair on your neck up. It a deep predatory tone. And the owl is a bringer of a message. Not a good one. Remember "I heard the owl call my name?"
Doves have a softer tone and they call at times owls usually dont. Full daylight hours. And no spook factor in the tone.

Thank you. The one I am asking about is nor alarming, more a cry of boredom than anything else.

I sometimes hear it on TV shows, like NCIS, but I don't remember what episode and such.

The next time you hear the call on a TV show, make a mental note of the program and the episode, and post it here. Maybe someone will be able to watch the episode and place the call.

Well, that certainly is a totally logical conclusion based on what I said.

That reply is an off-topic comment. I hope a moderator removes it and this response to it. Based on previous replies, people are allowed to make chit-chat like this. I am looking for forums more like Stack Overflow where responses are expected to be on-topic.

I've heard some interesting bird calls. I have to say that owls have never failed to make my hair stand on end. I grew up with all those old Western legends about the spirit animals. And owls are the Death Messenger. Yea it's hocus-pocus stuff but some childhood things stick with us.

Not for nothing but bird calls are not universally identical from individual to individual or region ot region. It is likely this is a mourning dove that varies slightly due to individual or regional differences.

City-data is nothing like stack overflow (thank goodness), where new members are consistently bashed and down-voted. And if you wish a moderator to notice posts that need moderation, you should use the report post button rather than posting about it.

But yeah, it gets pretty chatty around here. Sorry I don't know the name of your bird, I clicked on this thread because I found your thread title amusing.
