[nfc-l] Possible Dickcissel NFC

2016-11-06 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

Could someone with a bit more experience please confirm whether or not this
is a Dickcissel? It's getting kind of late for them, and the call sounds a
bit off. It was picked up by the Oldbird DICK detector at 0218, 11-2-16
over Dover, DE.

Thanks,

Jerald
Dover, DE

Re: [nfc-l] NFC Report Week of 10/1 through 10/7/2016

2016-10-24 Thread Jerald
John,

I built my mic using the plans on Bill Evans' site. I waterproofed it by
putting plastic wrap over the top, however there is an infinitesimal hole
where the audio cable comes through, and apparently water got in through
that. I had never had problems before, so I figured it would be fine. I
guess the rain was just too  heavy that day though.

During this period my supposedly waterproof homemade mic managed to get
soaking wet in a huge rainstorm, so I was unable to record on 3 nights
while I waited for new parts to arrive. This week I had 265 calls, of which
189 were identifiable.The most numerous call was Swainson's Thrush. Below

I still have over 400 calls to classify from the past two weeks, but I

season, complete with charts showing wind data, calls per hour, etc. I hope
to have that out by mid-November.

[nfc-l] Fwd: [de-birds] Maurice Barnhill

2016-10-04 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

I am very sad to report that longtime subscriber of the listserv, Dr.
Maurice Barnhill passed away last night. He was an active member of the
birding community (especially in my home state of Delaware), and will be
sorely missed by all. Below is a forwarded message from the DE-birds
listserv regarding Dr. Barnhill.

Jerald

-- Forwarded message --
From: Andrew Ednie 
Date: Tue, Oct 4, 2016 at 12:08 PM
Subject: [de-birds] Maurice Barnhill
To: de-bi...@princeton.edu


Hi everybody,
It's with great sadness to announce that Maurice Barnhill passed away last
night. He was in hospice at Christiana Hospital for a week, quietly went in
his sleep.

Maurice was awarded the Delmarva Ornithological Society's (DOS) "Outstanding
Achievement in Ornithology" last year after a long and distinguished career.
He was a co-author of "Bird of Delaware" (2000), served as Vice-president of
DOS, Records committee, and council, found the first record of White-faced
Storm-Petrel in North America about 15 miles east of Indian River Inlet, and
wrote the report for Delaware first Lark Sparrow. Many birders are using
Maurice's "Where to Find Birds in Delaware" today from the DOS web site.

Maury was an early proponent of the American Birding Association. He wrote a
series of articles on bird descriptions. He also had the highest Big Year
for ABA once, only because his friend, Harold Morrin didn't submit his list.
Maurice believed in mentoring the next generation, including current ABA
president-Jeff Gordon, along with Andy Mack, ornithologist from Papua New
Guinea, and Ted Parker, possibly the greatest field ornithologist of all
time.

Many birders don't know that Maurice was a high energy physicist at the
University of Delaware. After graduating from University of North Carolina,
he earned a Ph.D. from Stanford. There were 3 Nobel laureates on his
doctoral dissertation board.  His college class on Physical Science was a
pre-requisite for many of the science programs, but Maury was not happy with
the curriculum so he wrote his own textbook!

There will be a memorial service at the U of D to be announced. Maury is
survived by his brother Jim, his nieces, and many close friends in the
birding community. I will be glad to pass along any messages to the family.

Good birding,
Andy

[nfc-l] NFCs over Dover, DE 10/2

2016-10-02 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

I've been having technical issues with my mic, so I decided to go to one of
my favorite local patches, and just listen without the mic. In the 30
minutes that I was out, I had 101 calls, far more than I have ever picked
up in the same amount of time with the microphone. Below are the species
totals.

Greater Yellowlegs 1
Passerine Sp. 6
Warbler Sp. 3
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 55
Bobolink 1
Veery 4
Savannah Sparrow 12
Gray-cheeked Thrush 3
Swainson's Thrush 20
Black-crowned Night Heron 1

Please note that all of the RBGR calls are presumed. I'm not terribly
confident in the ID of their NFC, and honestly I called most of them
grosbeaks simply because they didn't match any of the thrushes. I attached
one of the presumed RBGR calls below; it sounds rather like a pure-toned
Gray-cheeked Thrush.

I have had a few interesting calls this week as well. They sound rather

Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but I would appreciate confirmation.

[nfc-l] NFCs Week of 9/3 through 9/9

2016-09-10 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

Despite the winds shifting to the south this week, I had more calls than
last week, with a total of 236. Below are the numbers per night, as well as
the numbers per species (estimated individuals in parentheses). Veery was
once again the most common bird.

9/3 87 calls
9/4 104 calls
9/5 11 calls
9/6 34 calls
9/7 1 call
9/8 0 calls
9/9 0 calls

Green Heron 16 (5)
American Redstart 21 (8)

Black-and-white Warbler 2 (2)

Black-throated Blue warbler 3 (1)

Northern Parula 3 (1)

Northern Waterthrush 3 (2)

Ovenbird 17 (6)

Warbler Sp. 61

Veery 89 (30)

Thrush Sp. 1

Bobolink 11 (8)

Bird Sp. 8

Passerine Sp. 1


I have uploaded several of my clearer unknown warbler calls to ebird,
if anyone cares to identify them. I believe that one is a
Bay-breasted, one is a Parula, and I'm not sure on the other two,
though the ascending call could be Yellow-rumped.

Re: [nfc-l] Interesting pattern in data recording

2016-09-06 Thread Jerald
Sorry all, it appears I was mistake in my earlier statement. I made an
excel chart of calls for three nights this week which I have attached
below. As you can see, the peak seems to be around 22:00 on all three
nights. However, I only listen live until 23:00, and use automatic
detectors for the rest of the night, so the data after 11 is most likely
skewed. The winds were from the north on all three nights.

[nfc-l] Strange Call

Could someone please tell me what this call is from last night? It's very
high, and doesn't sound like any NFC I've ever heard.

I was very excited to just hear the attached Dickcissel NFC over my yard in

[nfc-l] Another warbler

2016-08-07 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

Warbler migration has begun in earnest. I have had at least one warbler NFC
every night this week so far, with three redstarts, NOWA, and a few others.
This one came through this morning an hour before sunrise. It may not be
identifiable, but the call is really clear so I thought I'd send it out to
see if anyone could ID it for me.

Thanks,

Jerald

Apparently warbler migration is picking up, this one just came through a
few minutes ago. I know that zeeps aren't identifiable usually, but this
one sounds kind of distinctive. Waterthrush maybe? It's long and ascending.

Re:[nfc-l] Mic picking up FM radio

2016-06-19 Thread Jerald Reb
Thank you all! I ordered a new 50 foot cable, which should hopefully stop the 
humming. I also discovered that my mic was picking up the radio because of a 
low battery. I have no idea why, but I'm very glad it stopped!
I haven't heard many NFCs lately, but last night I heard my first Wood Thrush 
in nearly a month.

Hi John, I'm in Delaware, I meant to include that and forgot. Yes, I record 
overnight, and I save calls that I hear live. I'm using a mic that I built 
loosely following the plans on the Oldbird website, and a preamp that I bought 
from Amazon. For recording I use Raven lite while listening live, but I record 
overnight with audacity and the oldbird detectors.

[nfc-l] Another Shorebird

2016-05-13 Thread Jerald
Hello all,

could someone please tell me whether this call is a spotted or solitary
sandpiper (ebird link:http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S29624823)?
I usually can separate them because spotted is below 4 khz, while solitary
is above 4 khz, but this one is kind of in between. I'm inclined to call it
a low solitary, but I'm not sure.

[nfc-l] Scarlet tanager or Veery?

2016-05-11 Thread Jerald Reb
Hello again,

Could someone please confirm whether or not the calls listed as Scarlet tanager 
on this ebird checklist (http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S29554598) 
are actually SCTA? After listening to recordings, I think it sounds a bit burry 
for tanager, and might instead be a Veery?

Thank you,
