RE: [nfc-l] Interesting Calls

2016-09-24 Thread John Kearney
Hi Jerald,

I think some of the quality of the calls is lost when I convert your mp3s to 
wav files. I had a bit of trouble reading the spectrograms. There were a number 
of birds in those recordings. I could discern Swainson’s Thrush, Hermit Thrush, 
one Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and perhaps one or two Veery.

I have had a few interesting calls this week as well. They sound rather 
thrush-like, but don't match any of the thrushes. I'm guessing they're 
Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but I would appreciate confirmation.

Hi all,

I just wanted to post a reminder that when sending out flight calls for ID, 
some of us would really appreciating your leaving a second or two before and 
after the target sound. This really helps a lot when trying to actually listen 
to the recordings, as it can end up sounding like just a wall of sound 
otherwise, with the target voc impossible to pick out of the noise without some 
introduction first. Boosting the gain (normalizing) the clip would also be 
helpful in many cases. Both of these are also very important for prepping 
recordings for upload to eBird, if that is something anyone on here is 
interested in doing.

 

Thanks!

Jay

A night ago I recorded a couple interesting calls, which I have failed to 
identify spectrographically. If anyone could help in their identification, I 
would be very appreciative.

Same large flight down the Hudson River Valley last night with 2930 warbler and

Also, for anyone interested in getting in on the action this season I have six

There is s huge flight of thrushes over White Lake NY and Bennington VT tonight 
- I counted 300 plus thrushes in 30 minutes of nearly continuous layered 
calling. Mostly Swainsons but quite a few Gray-cheeked. All of which got 
flagged. Also 3 Am Bitterns
