I grew up hunting in NWPA and have heard many "strange" sounds in the dead of night in the deep woods. One of my friends who after being thrown out of the house at the age of 14 literally grew up living in the wilderness would often identify those noises.
More often than not it was a fox. As he said and I eventually learned, foxes can make some of the strangest sounds you could ever imagine. Sounds that make the hairs on your neck stand up from human screams to injured animal calls. They are masters of mimicry. I'll never forget my first encounter as we walked up an old lease road in pitch darkness stalking a wild dog pack that had chased my friend the evening before. Suddenly to my right I hear what sounds exactly like an infant crying. I almost peed my pants until my friend said, "just a fox"!

I have heard nosies such as one that sounded like a Police Siren as it starts up (not the entire range though, just the first half of the siren cycle, like it was being cranked up), but then immediately stops. I did some thorough investigating and figured it to be a specific species of Owl, I believe it was the Screeching Owl. Really freaky, but amazing how everyday animals can produce some rather hair-raising noises.

OK, I did find that site, I named it something close, however I did not see anything for Luzerne county. I'll have to delve a lil deeper into it.
