Albeit soft and slightly distant, this bird was recorded over Etna, NY on 23 
September 2016 at 23:25.

I would consider this to be a classic example because its peak frequency is 
above the 5kHz “safety” demarkation line.

This bird peaks around 5.25 kHz and has an overall duration of about 250 
milliseconds. Similar to the “possible Bicknell’s Thrush” examples posted 
yesterday, the sharp onset followed by a variably modulated and notably longer 
trailing descent is the call structure which caught my eye while browsing 
through my data last night.

Attached are both the recorded call (with some lower cricket and noise bands 
gently filtered out) and a screen grab of the call for visual representation.

Good night listening!
