    OK
    , I know you can hear the frogs but what is "screaming" in the background? It did this for about an hour last night and has started tonight. Last night, whatever it was, was wandering around doing this. It would get closer and louder and then fade away again. I've never heard any animal do this. Anyone?

    Having grown up in WNC, I was hoping I could identify it. I listened several times, so did DH. Nope.

    My best guess was a bird. His was #1. a deer, #2. some sort of bird.
