Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
My brother and nephew and me were camping in the woods. We were just sitting around the fire. It wasnlate at night.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
At first we heard what sounded like pounding on a tree with a rock or big stick in the distance. Itncontinued off and on for a long time. We heard a loud howl from the same area of the woods also. Wenknow it wasn't a coyote howl or something like that. It was a high pitched screeching noise unlike anynanimal that lives here.
Describe the time of year and the environment
June. Warm and humid weather. We camped at a site along a dirt road in the woods. There are nonhouses or anything for several miles. There are few roads in the area. Deep hollows and hills for milesnaround.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
Somebody found four-toed tracks in a field several miles west of the place this past winter
Additional comments
We heard Barred Owls later but really didnt hear anything else.
