Mystery Bird in New York

(New York)

I keep hearing the bird around 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm I checked a couple sites with bird calls but none sound excactly like It and I'm not a birder so I'm not sure how to put how it sounds like, the bird repeats the three calls to me it sounds like Doo Do Do, does anyone know what it might be?

Possibly an owl.

thank you for all your help but I guess I was hearing the bird wrong. I found out the bird is a Black-Capped Chickadee since I found out what my Mystery Bird is I'm going to be a Birder for now on :)

My apologies. I misread your question and thought it was 1:30 in the early morning that you heard the bird. That's why I suggested an owl! Go to this page and listen to a Mourning Dove.

Hi there. It almost sounds to me like a mourning dove. The call could almost be mistaken for a distant owl, but it does have that dooo do do sound. Try googling "mourning dove call" and listen if that is the sound you heard. Good luck.

Marissa, Since you are hearing it in the daytime, I was wondering if it could be a mourning dove? Try going to and choose their bird Field Guide. They have recorded the calls of a great many birds. I found my mystery bird there that I had been hearing every spring for over ten years.
