What you probably heard was a White-tailed deer "snorting" out air through
its nostrils. It is an alarm noise. The noise is often accompanied by
front foot pawing/stomping and then turning tail up and running away(by the
way, that's where the expression "high-tail it out" comes from). As for it
sounding like it came from up in the trees, I have yet to see a deer in a
tree!:) Sound around the river bounces and carries around.
Caught a glimpse of a possible black-billed cuckoo today on Cox's Mtn. trail
down by the river. I do say possible, because I never could get an
unobstructed view of the whole bird. One time glimpse of bill looked black.
I'll try that area again.
