What did we hear?

Last night the wife and I heard an animal call or sound that neither of us had ever heard before, and I'm wondering if anybody might have ideas what it could have been. The noise was something like a raspy screech and lasted perhaps a second or so each. It was repeated at least a dozen times at intervals, but stopped when I put on shoes and started walking out to the back field to investigate and I never saw anything. This happened after dark, about 8:30 p.m. Sound reminded me of something out of the movie Jurassic Park.

We live in rural farmland in central-western Maryland. We have foxes, occasional bears, and I believe I saw a coyote one time two years ago but never since. Other than that, just common small animals around. I know my description isn't too helpful, but anybody have any ideas what it could have been?
