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

I too have this calling. Sounds just like "hey birdie". I live in Tampa Bay, and have not heard it in about 3 months.
Please any comments?

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.
