Thanks, did you listen to that recording?  Would you say that sounds
like a fox (it should, unless whoever recorded it accidentally recorded
an owl)?  I listened to a few on that site, and it seems like there are
quite a few different ones.  I wouldn't describe the recording or what I
heard as a high pitched wheeze.  This is apparently a mating call.
