Illinois Screamer – Pt. 1

Illinois Screamer – Pt. 1

The first part of March 2010 I recorded the following sound. At first I thought it might be a Red Fox, but after listening to it further I don’t think that is the case. It would have been better if the Screamer had been closer to the mic. The recorder and microphone were on my patio running continuously. I am unsure of the direction from my home.

As both the Illinois Howl Illinois Howl and the Colorado Howl Colorado Howl would appear to be mimicking coyotes perhaps the Illinois Screamer is mimicking Red Fox.

    yes to mimmicking… while I lived in SE New Mexico, the house that I rented was in the back of an orchard. I had 2 foxes, one red one white that I used to leave food out for and they sure didn't sound like the caller. there was no ascent to theyre calls they sounded just like your red fox call with no rolling ascent to it

    I wish that I could compare the two, as I know what Florida foxes sound like, but I don't know if their Northern cousins would be different.

    Unfortunately, the Red Fox .wav sound won't play; I keep getting a 404 code for it with every browser I try.

    This is an amazing body of work you're doing here, Mr C., and I wish you the best of luck for the future. Bag one of these things on film for the world, finally!

      I fixed the broken links, thanks for the heads up.

    I wonder if it has occurred to anyone that this mysterious critter that sounds like a Red fox, is not making any attempt at sounding like a Red fox.

    Isn't it just possible that the mysterious critter and the Red fox have similar 'voices'?

    And I also wonder if the structures made by what ever these critters are, are the very structures the Plains Indians modeled their Tee-Pees from?

      I have often thought that they mimic fox, coyotes and wolves. Interesting thought on the Tee-Pee also.
