Hi Preston, Very interesting flight call. It reminds me of a type 2 Red Crossbill. It’s sounds a bit soft for this species but distance from mic might cause that. It is also unusual to get just one or two notes. Were there any others? I see from eBird there are some recent records from MA, RI, and NJ.

Do these calls originate from two separate species of birds, or are they one? And which species? Thank you.
