This Band-tailed Pigeon may sound like an owl, but it's a case of mistaken identity. The song of the American Robin could be confused with that of the Black-headed Grosbeak, as well.

And then, there’s the Black-capped Chickadee. At certain times of year, the male sings "Fee-bee, fee-bee," even though it’s not a "phoebe."

Listen to more bird songs and calls at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at Cornell University.
