[nfc-l] Possible Upland Sandpiper

2016-11-06 Thread Preston Lust

Night of 10/5/16 -- Yard, Westport CT

I was looking back at some calls I couldn't identify from the past month, and 
discovered what I believe could be an upland sandpiper. I lengthened the call a 
bit to make it easier to listen to. Thoughts?

[nfc-l] Interesting Calls

2016-10-31 Thread Preston Lust

10/30-31/16, 8:00 PM-6:30 AM -- Yard, Westport CT

Attached are mysterious calls I was unable to identify from last night's 
recording. If anyone could help me with them, I would be very appreciative. 
Perhaps most interesting is the "thrush" call at 22.44.00.

[nfc-l] Strange Calls Night Of 10/9-10/16

2016-10-10 Thread Preston Lust
10/9-10/16, 7:50 PM - 6:25 AM -- Yard, Westport CT

An overall decent nocturnal flight this night. However, I recorded the 
following calls which I cannot identify. The recording 1.16.26 appears to be 
two calls directly next to each other - one at a middle-range kHz and the other 
very high. 3.52.46 appears to be a Lincoln's/swamp, but looks rather different 
on a spectrogram. 20.33.58 is around 6 kHz and is a straight, single-banded 
line, almost sparrow-like. 3.38.00 contains two 8 kHz "ticks" that are very 
clean and sharp. 3.03.20 is similar. 4.37.12 is a long call that has a very 
faint second ban. It sounds superficially sparrow-like. 5.00.06 is the most 
interesting of these calls. This call sounds similar to a goldfinch, and is 
double-banded. These bands are widely separated by a space around 2 kHz wide. 
At the beginning, the lower band starts at 4.5 kHz, and the upper at 10 kHz. 
Very strange.

[nfc-l] Probable BICKNELL'S

2016-10-05 Thread Preston Lust

10/4-5/16, 8:00 PM-6:30 AM -- Yard, Westport CT

While looking over recordings from this night, I came across two calls that 
appeared to me significantly higher and purer-toned than standard gray-cheeked 
calls. Both peak at around 5 kHz. The call at 2.55.46 is the highest of the 
two, and thus more likely Bicknell's. Am I correct in calling them BITH? Thank 
you for any assistance.

[nfc-l] Interesting Savannah Sparrow Call

2016-09-25 Thread Preston Lust

9/24-25/16, 8:00 PM-6:30 AM -- Yard, Westport CT

While looking through the results of last night's extremely productive 
recording, I stumbled upon a very interesting savannah sparrow call which is 
superficially similar to an Ipswich call, mainly because it is highly 
modulated. As Ipswich savannah sparrows are very rare in Connecticut, I was 
wondering if anyone could confirm or refute this tentative ID. Attached is a 
screenshot of the spectrogram, and (a very brief) clip of the call.

Thank you for the input. Alas, I have yet to find a way to extend the 
recordings, which has annoyed me very much as well. From,

 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
