To me it's either the fisher or an injured rabbit. Those are just eerie.

Hyenas are very dangerous and have some of the eerieist sounds. Tasmanian Devils are gnarley too.

I live next door to a zoo. Just before a storm rolls in, the critters over there get very noisy. 2 species in particular are very vocal when the weather is fixing to change. I don't know if it's the eeriest. It's more screechy.

Just outside West Palm Beach, FL there is a campground with an attached drive through safari. There are about 2 dozen lions in there. Camping you can hear them roar occasionally. At first it sounds like the noise is being piped over on loudspeakers. But that is just their natural sounds. Loud & guttural. The volume is overwhelming. Even at a distance. I remember hoping that the fence between us & them holds up while we camped there.

To hear an alligator grunting is chilling, especially when you are in their realm, even more so if it's dark. It's right up there with the sound of a rattlesnake rattle going off nearby when you don't see the snake.

The giant bird that was on my roof one night in 2006.

When it's wings lifted it sounded like 1,000 prayer flags in tornado force winds. When the wings flapped down they made a percussive boom sound like a thunderclap. And the best/worst was how it screamed when it glided over my neighbors house.

It sounded like a mixture of a screaming eagle & a bellowing alligator. Absolutely terrifying & I've never heard anything like it, even after listening to hundreds of audio recordings of raptor calls.

Because of their wide range, large population and comfort in developed areas, red foxes are the most common animal described as making a sound like a woman screaming. Foxes, fishers, bobcats and cougars also make similar sounds.
I heard that scream one night, and wondered what it was. A couple of months later, I saw something about foxes screaming and a video of one, and I knew that's what I'd heard. There were a couple of foxes coming around to the yard at that time, and one of them must have been warning the other away.

I slept at the Philadelphia Zoo one night. It was a Girl Scout event, and I was a leader. The sound of giant turtles having sex is one of the weirdest sounds ever. They bellow.

A somewhat eerie but comforting sound is hearing a loon call in the night. This is a short video about it, but you hear the initial call right at the start.

Hearing a fisher cat, in the woods, at night, will scare the bejesus out of you.

I once had a strange experience with a umack bird.

He sat on a branch, looked at me and said "Ef U Mack."
