Is this what some call ribeye of the sky?

What kind of sound do they make?

Best way I can describe what I heard was something heavy on a rope swinging slightly making a creeking sound?

Had several flocks flying all around the house earlier.

I first thought the hangulator was squeaking but finally realized what it was.
Got the binoculars out and they appeared to be all white from underneath and were definately a crane of some kind.

They make a hell of a racket. We are covered up with then dang things, hence the new season staring here.

Sounds about like a good description of them, Ruger. They make a lot of noise (and poop)

they fly at night and I work with a guy that put the smack down on them thursday morning in our new season. I describe their sound to be like someone saying "toodle loo, toodle loo".
