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?

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 


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.
