Hello all,

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 parentheses)

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)

10/6 65

10/7 9

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.
