I said it.. with all seriousness. That's what my mentor called a cackle when they were on the ground. You know, when they're getting ready to fly off the tree they do a flydown cackle. I can't believe you never heard of it before being "Old School" and all. [:D]

When my Mother gets moles in her yard, she calls them "ground moles." I tell her to be glad they are only ground moles and not the "air moles" as those are really hard to get rid of. She doesn't quite understand the humor in that and always gives me a puzzled look.
