I am not familiar with Maine, but as an amatuer bird-watcher, I would guess it's a screech owl, you could try finding a recording of it online, audubon.org has a lot of birding links
Or it could be a bobcat, or short eared or long eared owl. Also, the barred owl makes a horrible sound in some of its calls. Go to the Cornell site, "All About Birds".
