This is just a thought, but Carolina Wrens make some really odd sounds and your 
habitat description sounds right for that species.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Mystery sound

Yesterday, at the Logan Hill Preserve in Candor, I heard a sound I've never 
heard before.  It maybe translates to "tick-grrrrrr" - but not at all like a 
tanager's "tick-burrrr."  The "grrrrr" sound was deep and dry. The call was 
repeated several times before I had to leave, and came from a hedgerow between 
two fields.  Do woodcocks ever make such a sound? They often hang out in the 
same general area.
Any ideas?
Betsy
