Not So Distant Screams in the Night – Update

Not So Distant Screams in the Night – Update

On the evening of the 8th of April 2009 at 2 a.m. I recorded 5 minutes of a series of screams. Sadly they were at a distance and the quality of the recording was poor.  Most researchers thought that the sound maker was a fox.

Update –

On the 1st of May at about 4 a.m. I again recorded this Red Fox.  This time he was very close to the recorder.

I took this  picture several years ago of another Red Fox at a distance with a point and shoot camera.

Many readers contacted me that they thought this sound was a fox.  One of those that helped identify this sound was Doug Von Gausig of Naturesongs.com.

Doug wrote –

On my website (http://www.naturesongs.com) I offer to help people identify unknown sounds they hear, and the Red Fox is the number one culprit! It’s such an unusual and scary sound, and people seldom actually see the perpetrator. I always know just from the initial description what it is. Also, the reports peak in the Spring each year, during the breeding season. The second most reported “mystery” is the Barn Owl, and Great Horned Owlets come in third or so.   Doug

    Stan: One of the things that makes your web site one of the best on Bigfoot, is that you are open to learning from others. I am referring to the feedback you got on the fox calls. We all run the danger of talking ourselves just a little too serious sometimes. I truly related to your earlier comment about your dog Belle and her greeting to you compared to your wife when coming home from a trip. Having been married 40 years next month, I know exactly what you mean. I will never forget what Harry Truman said about his wife, Bess. He said she was there to bring him up when he was down and bring him down when he was up. A lot of wisdom in that saying. Good Luck. Les Hauser

    Thank you! This is exactly what I was hearing in our woods the other night. I thought it was maybe a bobcat. Who knew foxes made these spooky noises. It is so eerie.

    I am so thankful to have found your site! We have been hearing this awful sound coming from out back of our house. We live just on the outskirts of town and have just a very small wooded area behind our home. This scream would alert all the local dogs, and that did not seem to bother it at all! We were sure it was a sick coyote…however my husband did question weather it could be an owl. It has scared the daylights out of my teenage daughter and all of her friends (but they have all managed to get recordings on their cell phones)! So tonight I did my research…..and you gave me my answer…red fox! When I told my son..he remembered seeing a red fox out back a couuple months back. Thats our little fellow…Thanks again!
