A little outside the known range, but velociraptors sound prehistoric.

I was thinking woodpecker too, heard a similar sound yesterday, I was coming out of the timber, windy, heard it twice, I stopped and noted it came from an area that has two dead standing oaks,  I just thought woodpecker but it was a different sound for sure, I have heard the herins' they definetly have that jurasic sound,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

 i believe it is a do-do bird. they are hard to see since they hide in the leaves on the ground.

I have heard the herons' they definitely have that Jurassic sound,

Do we know what Jurassic animals sounded like? I think the term defines the forms of life, not their voice.  Too many movies. ;)

Those pileated woodpeckers have been here for years on my land,but I've only seen 1 or 2 in all the time I've been here.
I've seen this on some of the trees,but don't see the one doing the damage much.

Is there anyway for you to record it and put it on here?

I'm inclined towards either a woodpecker or a heron of some variation. What about an owl? They do come out during the day, too.

I do have woodpeckers around here- there was one hammering on the barn the other day. The calls I found on-line don't sound anything like it, though. Must be a woodpecker that got clogged up with grits. :D

I always thought the pileated call sounded like it was chuckling as it flew through the woods.

The first time I heard a piliated woodpecker I thought it sounded very much like the gutteral sound of a great blue heron. A raspy grackkk. Most of the sounds you hear and are recorded are of them perched, but when they fly and are startled they make a different sound. the closest I've found is the first recording of fledglings at www.musicofnature.org/authors/marie-read/  This isn't the same but it gives you an idea of the variety of sounds a pileated woodpecker can make.

There is also variation in sound by region. We have bobolink here and I know their songs well. The ones I here recorded as similar but not the same as ours. I know they are migratory like herons and such, but they sound a little different anyway. Hey why not? You've never been to Newfoundland have you? ;)

Do you have sandhill cranes there?  Could be one of those noisy beasts
