We've had red foxes calling and one in our front yard yesterday around 3:30-4AM, probably doing their mating calls.

  I just heard a strange noise as I was walking the dogs, I think it was a
  bird but maybe not.  The sky was just starting to get light.  It was a loud
  series of screeches, sounded almost like a duck or goose alarm call but a
  lot rougher and almost more metallic (if that makes senses).  There was a
  series of several short, fast screeches then they slowed down a little and
  came further apart and then stopped.  I heard this noise given several times
  with maybe 30 seconds to a minute in between.  I have no idea what this
  could have been, does anyone else?


  I also heard a Wild Turkey gobble in the woods.  Yesterday the Winter Wren
  was singing.  Do they breed around here or is he just warming up for his
  trip north?
