Thank you Jay. I cannot hear most of the clips posted here. This is apparently a "thing" where some people can hear the bird sounds in these short clips and others cannot. I just hear a burst of static. Please put enough ambient sound on BOTH sides of the bird sound for our ears to hear the sound in its proper context.
Thanks Ken Sent from my iPhone On May 2, 2017, at 8:46 PM, Jay McGowan <jw...@cornell.edu<mailto:jw...@cornell.edu>> wrote: Hey all, I've posted this before, but I would implore folks posting example recordings to this list to leave a few seconds of sound before and after the call in question so you can actually hear it. With only a second-long recording, all I hear is a burst of sound with no time for my ear to acclimate to the background noise. The same goes for audio upload to eBird. We suggest leaving three seconds, if possible, before the first and after the last vocalization in the recording before upload. Thanks!
