I have compiled a short sample of suspect whistles and bird calls from my audio on June 30th. In most cases it is the loudest whistle on the recording:

This is a straght up whistle after I had movement near me:

The second example I put on here because this is the only time on the audio that this bird sound occurred. It is not as elaborate as the "real" bird whistles I had heard all day long:

This is another suspect whistle that was only heard within a 10 second period during the audio: (It occurred 3X in the audio within the 10 seconds. Note that it is not very elaborate but it is way louder than the other "real" bird whistles ... (I was moving through brush on most of it and this was the clearest)It is the loud whistle near the end of the recording:

I believe this to be very similar to the duck sounds I have been hearing. I have copied it in the recording 3X in a row:

The double whistle and bird call is on the audio about 10 seconds before the first scream. I copied it twice:

I'm not familiar with the critters that are in your area...Monsters will and do mimic known critters...something I "think" I've learned when in and around a group of Monsters...they have a bird stress call...similar to a Brown Thrasher going to roost...

I know most of the familiar calls/whistles but there are over 300 species of birds in this area and I am not an ornithologist. It does not help that I am still learning. If anyone can identify the sounds/whistles/calls it would help me immensely so I know what to identify and throw out.

I targeted these because they only happened in a limited time/space and did not happen again. They also seemed to be out of place in terms of volume, proximity and singularity.

Monster Hunter you mentioned the brown thrasher... If monsters can imitate these birds they have a remarkable repertoire...Perhaps I should look for more sophisticated whistles instead of simple ones? I appreciate your expertise in this area and any help anyone can give is appreciated.

I thought this might be a good subject to expound upon.

As you learn and discuss we all hopefully should learn with you...I along with the forum members appreciate you sharing your work...I applaud your efforts...hang in there, take pictures and listen/record the various sounds...I do believe you have an area of activity...

I appreciate the support. There is absolutely no way I could have understood what was happening here without your insight.
