Quail calling to one another early morning right after sunrise and again right around sunset in the evening.
Ruffled Grouse "Drumming" mid morning.
Canada Geese honking as they fly over in the morning on their way out to local ranchers fields.

And, first time in about 4 years...........I was just returning from bathroom about 1:30 am, and heard a couple of wolves howling 'up-a-storm'............sure hope it didn't mean they just nailed a new-born WhiteTail fawn.

And so it goes out "in the boonies"!!!!!!

Sounds like OZ here on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee

We have the Yellow-billed Cuckoo that starts calling around 3p till after sun down https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/...uckoo/overview

Then the Barking Tree Frogs that congregate in the metal road culverts trying to out do one and other for a mate..
Cow's hundreds of them.. mooing as them lumbar towards the corner of the field as the sun sets
.Canadian Geese over head... honking and looking for a pond.. along with Cranes seeking a safe place for the night
Screaming Pileated Woodpeckers again trying to be heard over the other screamers Size of a small parrot
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/...ecker/overview
and a hand full of Cat Birds mimicking all the other birds.. Wrens - Warblers - Jays - Cardinals - Towhee's
The owls.. Barn - Screech as the sun goes down..
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/...h-Owl/overview
Screams of the Red Tail Hawks.
https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/..._Hawk/overview
And yipping of the coyotes... roaming pack as nigh progresses
And the dang bull frog in the down spout.. calling for a mate...
I won't get into the pesky Falling Monkey's

Never heard a Ruffed Grouse...

and lucky you to hear wolves...hope they are thriving where you are...

The red wolf was introduced to the ACE basin wildlife area of NC years back.
I think they are slowly multiplying....

Great list!

I have yet to see a YBC...

Love the tree frogs....in the evening they are so numerous and loud it's impossible to carry on a conversation on the screen porch, due to the volume...

Oh but Indigo buntings are gorgeous!!

NC has Painted buntings only in coastal areas, usually. SC has more, saw a lot when I lived there.

I had both grosbeaks at a previous location...really enjoyed them. They might be around here, since my area is similar to yours, but my place is so wooded birds are hard to see sometimes...
