There's this weird screeching noise and it only happens at night.... and it has nothing to do with my Buick. (Sorry but GOTCHA!)
Most evenings, after dark, in the woods behind my house there has been a very creepy screeching noise - some kind of bird of prey that keeps flying back and forth. The sound is persistent, every 30 seconds to a minute it repeats. It has been driving me nuts so I went online and started searching through nocturnal birds of prey. There were some websites that had recorded bird calls but none of them matched what I was hearing. Eventually I found my answer and it fits perfectly. The screeching sound I am hearing is made by a baby Great White Horned Owl begging food from it's parents and following them as best it can. They can hop from branch to branch and even fly as early as two months and will continue begging for food up until the time they are five months old.
