Hi Dioni, Thanks for sharing some of your night flight call clips. I’ve never used Kaleidocsope so it interesting to see what a spectrogram looks like on the program. Some of your calls were not very clear, perhaps because they were distant. In any case, you might try adjusting your spectrogram parameters and time/frequency axes to see if it brings more clarity. Among the ones I could discern, a number appeared to be White-throated Sparrows. I also saw Chipping Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, Swainson’s Thrush, Common Yellowthroat, and American Robin.
The best guide to night flight calls is the CD-ROM by Evans and O’Brien, Flight Calls of Migratory Birds. I believe it is currently out of print but there’s a good chance that it is available in a library. Otherwise, I would recommend the website of Paul Driver, http://pjdeye.blogspot.ca/, and scroll down his right menu for the flight calls of various species groups. Hope this helps and best of luck in your listening!

I am from Quebec (Laval region). I am very interested in ornighology for 3 years specially vocalization and recently, I developed a particular interest for the study of their song and call by sonogram. I do a lot of recording during the night when I sleep, and the next morning, I analyze my recordings. It's not easy even if I have some documentation in relation to the charts of the calls of the species. I was wondering if you had any documentation to offer me. Tips? If someone could help me identify or confirm my graphics? I use Kaleidoscope for the analysis of my recordings. I have 6 SONY tape recorders and 1 H4nPro tape recorder. Here are some of my first graphs if someone wants to help me: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1731927110445620.1073741851.100008850429260 <https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1731927110445620.1073741851.100008850429260&type=1&l=13eaff1366> &type=1&l=13eaff1366 Dioni Loïc Sauvé Laval -- NFC-L List Info: <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_WELCOME> Welcome and Basics <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_RULES> Rules and Information <http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC-L_SubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm> Subscribe, Configuration and Leave Archives: <http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html> The Mail Archive <http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NFC-L> Surfbirds <http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NFC> Birding.ABA.Org Please submit your observations to eBird <http://ebird.org/content/ebird/> ! -- -- NFC-L List Info: Welcome and Basics � http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_WELCOME Rules and Information � http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC_RULES Subscribe, Configuration and Leave � http://www.northeastbirding.com/NFC-L_SubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm Archives: The Mail Archive � http://email@example.com/maillist.html Surfbirds � http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NFC-L Birding.ABA.Org � http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NFC Please submit your observations to eBird! ��http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
