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

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.

Thank you very much for responding. Here is another example. I think lesser 
yellowlegs could be an option. Thoughts?
