Help ! What bird makes this call?

by Bonnie
(Davis, Ca)

Hello,

I live in Davis Cal. and every morning and evening I hear a bird. It sounds like "Hey Birdie" It only sings it 2 or so times. I can never get a recording of it. My daughter and I have looked and can never see it. I've looked and listened to every recording of birds I can find. It's unusual in the way it "says" birdie.....like an uplift at the E sound like it's asking a question. (If that makes sense) "Hey BirdiEE?
Does anyone know? It's driving me crazy trying to figure out what it is. (I don't get out much I guess ) It's not a Cardinal they don't live around here.I'd appreciate any thoughts.
Thanks,
Bonnie

What kind of vegetation and trees surround you and are you near water? Is the rest of the call (not a song?) in the same tone? Keep trying for a picture or at least, a description of what it looks like.
