Thank you to all those who contacted me offline to suggest what that screaming was. The most interesting suggestion was that it might have been a red fox. (Go on UTube to hear some fox cries. They are really awful!) But most everyone said Ring-necked Pheasant, and Luke Tiller sent a link to the Cornell recording of the call. That's it, alright! Yikes! I will be all ready for next year's CBC now.

He is wiser than that, I think."
