Congrats Joe!  ( wish I had your hearing )

On 5-26, Ian Resnick, Arlene Rawls, and I birded Shawangunk.  We Crossed paths with Shai Mitra and Pat Lindsey, the former had informed us that he believed he had heard a Henslow's Sparrow.


Our group walked to the blind where one had been last year, and then down to the next blind, and Ian though he heard a faint / distant bird. Neither Arlene or I heard it , and all who had seemed to think it was distant and or calling faintly, and not often and loudly as the one last year had done.

Ian and I were musing about the following... Is there any merit to the thought that a bird -hoping- for a mate would sing loudly and frequently, while one who may have attracted one would be more demure?

thoughts?
