For the past few months, my neighborhood has been under the spell of an honest-to-God, No One-Knows-What-It-Is mystery. Here are the salient details, and I’ve included a sound file of the noise for the record.
Almost every night, there’s a sound that comes out of the darkness. The people I’ve talked to don’t know what it is, though we’re all fairly certain it’s a bird of some kind. Some of them have listened to recordings of nocturnal birds, but none of them have sounded anything like our mystery beastie.
It’s only at night, and it only lasts about a second or so when it sounds. “Eeeee,” is what I write it as, though you can hear it on the sound file I guess. There’s 15 to thirty seconds of silence, and then it goes again. On the sound file, I edited out the long pauses so you get the noise pretty close together.
