Thanks for sharing this Jerald.
I’ve had the worse week ever for microphone damage. We were hit with the
remnants of Hurricane Matthew and then another severe storm.
What kind of microphone do you make and how do you waterproof it?

Sorry I've fallen a bit behind in posting these, I've been extremely busy and
just haven't had time to go through my calls. High school is such a blast.
Anyway, getting down to the interesting stuff...
During this period my supposedly waterproof homemade mic managed to get soaking
wet in a huge rainstorm, so I was unable to record on 3 nights while I waited
for new parts to arrive. This week I had 265 calls, of which 189 were
identifiable.The most numerous call was Swainson's Thrush. Below are totals for
each night, as well as species totals (estimated minimum individuals in
10/1 48 (Moderate E/SE winds)
10/2 No data
10/3 No data
10/4 No data
10/5 143 (Moderate NE winds)
Great Blue Heron 7(1)
Green Heron 2(1)
Swainson’s Thrush 62(21)
Gray-cheeked Thrush 1(1)
Thrush Sp. 2
Blackpoll Warbler 5(2)
Cape May Warbler 2(1)
Common Yellowthroat 1(1)
Magnolia Warbler 3(1)
Northern Parula 5(2)
Yellow-rumped Warbler 1(1)
Pine Warbler 2(1)

I still have over 400 calls to classify from the past two weeks, but I should
have them out soon. Also, I'm working on a full report from this season,
complete with charts showing wind data, calls per hour, etc. I hope to have
that out by mid-November.
