That's a big ol' coon in a skinny little tree. That may be a persimmon tree, or some other type of bearing tree. They will shake fruit out of it, and then climb back down and eat it. I can see his silhouette really well at one point. I can even see the ears on his head, and his tail. Coons do this all the time. And, that's how they climb. Whereas, a squirrel runs down the trunk of a tree head first, a coon backs down because they can't turn around very fast to get away from a predator. That first sound you are hearing is an owl. That second sound may actually be a duck. You're in the right location at the right time to hear a variety of ducks.
