Hi Folks,
Does anyone have NFC recordings of this sp. from North America?
We're debating a bird over here on the other side of the pond
cheers,

Re: [nfc-l] How do we know NFCs?

2018-02-02 Thread Dominic Garcia-Hall
Thanks for sharing the paper Jay. I have one of Bill’s mics so it was v
interesting reading that.
By way of comparison, I moved from the States to Europe last Fall, and have
been resuming my NFC recording on this side of the pond. We are certainly
still behind on NFC knowledge over here, and for a many species still in
the phase of comparing to diurnal calls (well, I am anyway). But it’s
changing fast and there is some interesting work being done -  in
particularly the UK based Sound Approach who are publishing a lot of stuff:
https://soundapproach.co.uk/category/night-flight-calls/
I also have been recording a bit when I go back to visit family in
Argentina. But this is ground zero. I can ID about 1% of a typical night’s
calls ;)  But it has given me a lot of respect for the folks who pioneered
this back in the day.

Cheers
Dom

2017-10-28 Thread Dominic Garcia-Hall
Hi All
Sorry to piggyback this discussion but am curious if anyone has seen any
good tutorials on Raven Pro.
I bought it a couple years ago thinking it would streamline/improve my
work-flow (beyond audacity) but haven't really used it that much as i find
the UX pretty counterintuitive and the manual not very good.
It might partly be down to my lack of perseverance, of course
cheers
Dominic
PS - Back in England for a while and lots of Pink-footed geese, Redwings
and Fieldfares on my NFC tape last night! Nice to hear the sounds of
migration on a different continent.

[nfc-l] Odd NFC - Hudson River, Hudson county NJ

2016-10-16 Thread Dominic Garcia-Hall
Hi all,
Was recording over the Hudson river last night, with the mic angled hoping
to pick up any waterfowl migrating mid-river, and picked up this.

https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S32046015

Am pretty new to NFC recording so still learning. I thought this was
interesting. It sounded like a shorebird or something when i first heard
it, but i really have no idea. I'd love to know if anyone can ID it.

Of course I'm fully prepared for it not to be a bird - the last thing that
caught me out when I tried recording over the river was some metal bit of
the jetty creeking right at 5khz, I suppose when a boat wake disturbed it
in the night ;)

Cheers
Dominic
