Bird in distress screaming!? HELP
I woke up this morning, and heard a bird screaming in one of the nearby Evergreen Trees. It was a single note yelp and was very disturbing. We've never heard anything like this before from the birds. There were a bunch of birds flying around it seeming upset, I believe either starlings or grackles. I live on Long Island, NY.
What bird do you think made this noise, and why? Audio recording attached.
