    OK- I'll bite- If we've ruled out the owls- could it be a nighthawk? They have a very loud sudden call- but they tend to be repetitive enough as to not be a startling type of sound....

    Of course you have to find a balance between showcasing skills and training and just being a horse scaring jerk.
