Observation details

Heard calling from my neighbor's back yard while I was inside my home. Listened on my balcony for a half hour between 10:30 pm-11:00 pm. Attached is a recording of two consecutive calls, about 15 seconds apart (Audio from Canon SX50-HS). Owl called intermittently during the half hour. Last call was at about 10:50 pm. No visual. I did not use playback or other noises to attract it. Given changes in sound strength, it appeared to call from three different perches. Habitat is urban, primarily deciduous trees, in general 20-40 feet. I live 5.8 miles from the Idaho Shakespeare Festival grounds, where there were many sightings reported last fall and winter. Perhaps the same individual?
