I stepped out into the yard about 7:30pm tonight with the dog and heard an odd nails on blackboard or rusty hinge noise.  I was able to catch it a few times, initially in a nearby fir tree, then from a distance as it moved away.  I then listened online and decided it was a Barn Owl.

Of course, I'm no expert, especially when it comes to either owls or bird calls.  Still, if correct, a first for me.

And a pleasant evening!
