Strange sounds in the night

photo: kids.nationalgeographic.com

It got up to 82 today and so when I got home, I opened up all the windows and turned on the ceiling fans and it felt warm and almost tropical in the house (nice til I want to sleep...) and the peepers were serenading...

And then, this sound, like a bird? A fox in heat? Or something trapped and succumbing, across the lake, in the dark...Unsettling if you were a creature outside, and being safe inside...


I just wondered "What the hell is it?"

  2. Sounds spooky whatever it is. It reminds me of the call of a hawk at night.

  7. It sounds like a heron--quite a few are active at night, especially during migration and the breeding season. I'm not sure what part of the country you live in so I don't know what herons you would have but if I had to guess, I would say this is a yellow-crowned night-heron.

  8. According to all of the mysteries I see on tv from britian, it is a fox.
