Help identify this instrument / sound.

There is a certain organ sound used in a lot of old prog music. A grindy organ sound. A perfect example is here, starting at 2:48. What is the instrument, and, if applicable, what is the setting / tone / whathaveyou (for example, if the instrument were a Hammond organ, what button would be pushed / levers flipped / etc. to get that sound? If a Moog, what dials would be turned, more or less?)?

Help genre these artists

When people say "what kind of music do you like?" I don't have an answer to tell them. Two of may favorite albums ever are Martin Tillman's A Year In Zurich and Jeremy Soule's Morrowind soundtrack. But, I can't put my finger on what genre these albums are. Classical and Jazz are too vague. [more inside]

Is this raptor just a really gruff osprey?

What is this raptor I hear every morning? I'm in Plymouth, MA near a large lake. It's not an osprey or bald eagle (I listened to all the raptors at All About Birds), and unfortunately I have only seen it once (and not very well) so ID'ing it by sound is my only option. The problem is that it sounds like a Harris's Hawk, which only lives in the Southwest. [more inside]
