Bird alarm cry identification

David Brostoff

Tonight from about 8:00 to 8:30 p.m. I heard a loud bird alarm cry from somewhere high in the hillside oaks near the Clark Kerr Campus in Berkeley.

It was a single-note, full-throated scream that lasted for a second or so and was repeated about every five seconds.

There is a recording here:

I would be grateful for an identification.
