Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jim Von Lossow:

After speaking with the witness and his mother, both of whom heard the vocalizations, the following can be added.

The sounds originated no more than 100 yards from their yard.

High whoops finishing in low guttural sounds at first. Also some chirping and shrill, high-pitched whistling type sounds.

Each series of loud calls was answered by a different set of calls further away. The adult witness said "There was a tone of conversation in some of the vocals."

A few weeks later the pair again heard similar sounds just outside the boundary of their yard in the early evening hours.

The family's normally brave dog would not leave the porch during these episodes.
