On the Glastonbury CBC and again later at the same location in a wooded area near a corn field, I heard from the woods a bird screaming very much like a chicken does some times. Very harsh and raspy, and sometimes rhythmic. Anyone know what that might have been? I looked and looked, but was never able to locate the bird making that sound...although it seemed to be coming from the floor of the woods. Some game bird?
I sure did not recognize the sound.

He is wiser than that, I think."
