Sounds like a turkey?!
(Western New York)
I live about 50 yards from the edge of a very large wooded area in Western NY. When I was a kid, my Dad had this wooden turkey call, and that's the sound I hear every morning. I finally saw the bird(s) making that sound this morning though through binoculars. Tall slender bird about 10" or more, gray in color. It was flying back and forth from the tree line to the pond communicating with another still hidden high up in the tree line. It appeared to be a bird of substantial size cause of the wing span. I tried to see any distinguishable characteristics about this bird, but it was just too far away. Except that it's call reminds me of a turkey, and it's so loud it's echoing through the woods as I type this. Is it possible that this bird have a full looking breast, red-dish brown in color? It just flew out again from the tree line. Sorry so vague.
