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?

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 Great Blue Heron 7(1) Green Heron 2(1) Killdeer 32(11) Swainson’s Thrush 62(21) Veery 18(6) 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) Palm Warbler 2(1) Warbler Sp. 55 Savannah Sparrow 45(15) White-throated Sparrow 1(1) Passerine Sp. 18 Bird Sp. 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.
