Ok, I hear it in the summer/fall trees as night, but it sounds more like a frog, or a really big cricket.

The sound is a low, gravely, jibb-jibb....jibb-jibb....jibb-jibb...jibb-jibb non-stop, at intervals of a couple of seconds.

If we make a noise it stops instantly, but will start again a few seconds later.

A bird? if so what?

Those katydids make a racket. I thought they were tree frogs until I figured out what was making all that noise, couldn't see the things in the trees because they blended in so well.

I'm guessing from the description tree frog or cricket. None of those previously posted noises sounded at all like a tree frog to me. But then I've held them and heard them peep. Our deck is eat up with them near any lights.

You remind me of a poem or short story about the mysterious "Dibb Dibb" that sounded during the night. It goes on about how monstrous a creature it must be and it eventually is discovered to be a dripping faucet.

I can't remember who wrote it, (Poe? Elliot?) and a quick online search shows nothing.

If you've ever had a cricket in the house at night, you'd know if that was the sound. You might even have a cricket hunting adventure story to share.
