    Seriously? Ever heard one scream? Around dusk, on a Sunday, when everyone is just settling down for a nice late afternoon nap?

    When they scream, it sounds like a woman is screaming for help. It's really awful. That being said, they are SO PRETTY!!

    LOL. I can picture it.

    I remember when I was 13 or 14 waking my mom up late at night once because I heard one. I was really scared and ready to call the police.
