I saw this video last year - I am still stunned. It wasn't our critter, but a fantastic piece of information to know! I would never, in a million years, have attributed that sound to a mountain lion.

Okay - the Missus here. Here are the facts - single animal, 800' down to the bottom of the canyon. There are two camps - Raccoons and Owls. Who wants to be the Sharks and who wants to be the Jets?

This is kind of freaking me out but, after seeing this Ed post, I was looking at movie trivia just now and came across this link: https://www.vulture.com/2013/04/how-the-dino-sounds-in-jurassic-park-were-made.html-------------Scroll down to Baby Raptor sounds in the article. Ha. MountainMan you will enjoy hearing this baby owl.

Agreed the sound is similar... but I cannot scrub Jeff Goldblum in a black unbottoned shirt out of my brain. If I have nightmares, it's your fault.

Definitely not a mammal. You can tell it's a bird.

Methinks it's a raccoon. Someone a coon hound could let their dog hear the recording and get an expert opinion.

One time I heard a mtn lion in heat it sounded kinda similar. Also someone up there has peacocks but that isn’t what they usually sound like.

Yes, one of my neighbors has peacocks and their cry is very distinctive. Almost sounds like calling "Help." This recording is definitely not a peacock, but very curious after all the responses what it really is!

I turned my volume all the way up and listened through the headphones. Possibly a young bobcat? Still hard to hear, hopefully not an animal in distress. But yes, made the hair stand up on the back of my neck for sure!

That's a young raccoon being dragged along by it's mother to keep it out of some mischief. They never go along peacefully and Mama has to take stern measures. Sometimes the sound like screaming babies and it makes the hair on the back of you neck. You are in for a real treat, however....just wait until they have sex right under your window!!! I'm not sure what Mother nature was thinking when she created male raccoons with hooked magic baby wands! If human males had one it might well serve as birth control, as I don't know a single female that would put up with that!!! Yipes!

Thinking, owls too... The Museum of Natural History, here, has a cool birds of prey, exibit... You can push a button and here the call's of the different owl sounds.

Yeah, I'm gonna go with owl. One of the weirdest calls I EVER heard in my backyard turned out to be a young Barn owl screaming for its dinner/Mom/Dad. And "my" owl went on and on and ON, until I finally went outside to have a look and spooked him. This may be a Great horned owl chick, as my Barn owl chick sounded different from this.

It's pretty faint, so I'm guessing... There are moments when it sounds like a trapped cat, either bobcat or cougar. However, the consistency over a long period (over a minute), makes me doubt that guess.

I was thinking Baby Great Horned Owl screeching for dinner.

Very possible. Or a female defending her nest. Have a listen here at the 1:00 min mark ......... https://www.audubon.org/news/can-you-recognize-call-great-horned-owl

Pretty faint and hard to hear. Coyotes maybe? Or some type of bird?
