Hi Jeanine--I think your bird was an Osprey. M-shaped wings, larger, light-colored below, and the call sounds like it too.

On Saturday I was getting my house ready for family when I heard a repeated scream from above that I didn?t recognize. I didn?t have binoculars for ID but saw larger lighter-colored bird gliding above, M-shaped wings. I had enough time to whip out the Merlin Sound ID to catch this audio file. I?ve been sitting on this since I?ve been busy, but It seems to match the Peterson Field Guide to Bird Song and one audio file from an app. I got a couple of bursts recorded, unfortunately the long one has a leaf blower in the background (grumble grumble) so I apologize for the poor quality. Does this seem correct?

Location is North Beach neighborhood just east of Golden Gardens. It continued its screams as it glided towards GG.

Keep on birdin,
