long necked bird with call of who who

by Ben Gerke
(golden, co)

this is at 730 at night in eastern Colorado, against the foothills of the mountains. It is a long necked bird which was calling who who, extending its neck as it did so. It was perched on a tree, about 50 feet up. We are adjacent to some wetlands, but what the heck would be up in a tree with a neck like that? It sounded like a horned owl,but it was very obviously not so.large size, at least a foot from breast to tail, with at least 8 to 10 inches of neck from there. Any help? tried to get the camera, but it fled.

Heron?

The long neck and proximity to wetlands makes me think it might be a heron.
