Night calling woodland bird???

I live in woodlands in central MD and have been hearing this bird call at night for the last few weeks (its now mid July). I've ruled out Night Heron, Screech Owl, Mockingbird and most likely The Nighthawk. I've even considered the possibility of the gray tree frog but no, I don't think so. It actually sounds like there are two birds. I've attached an mp3 that I recorded. Can anyone help me with this mystery?

I think it's a young great horned owl (or two).
