I have heard some anomalies...The bird calls were from the red bellied wood pecker
I think they mimic birds in the area
I do think the monsters can mimic bird sounds but i have not heard the thrasher... The differences are these:
1. sheer volume. The sounds I heard were at least 4X louder than other calls I have heard. I have been within 25 feet of this bird on multiple occasions and I had never heard them this loud before.
2. The anomalous sounds I heard were coming from a grassy area not the wood line or trees. At one point there were three calls each coming from a grassy area well outside and away from any trees/treeline
3. The only time these calls occurred was when I was in the grassy area. They did not happen before or after I left that area.
4. the end of the call had a throaty/raspy sound to it
i have heard an owl type call... that was obviously a monster and not an owl. It literally sounded like a woman trying to imitate an owl. This call had a long "ahhhhhh" after the call " whoooooooooo ahhhhhh"
I have heard a call that could be confused for a "duck" type sound.
It is also my firm conviction that they mimic the wood pecker knocks...and can embed stealth knocks into other sounds of the forest
I have audio evidence for each of these except the owl sound
