Re: [nfc-l] NFC recording 7 minutes twilight this morning

2017-09-10 Thread david nicosia
I am going through many of my ebird lists from years ago and am changing to 
nocturnal flight count and following the protocol below. I have been using 
ebird for many many years and am a reviewer for my local county. So far, I am 
the only one in my county who does NFC so I appreciate your comments. Like I 
said, I should have known this...

{}#yiv6096731939 Dave,  In your recording I am able to hear mostly Swainson’s 
Thrush and some Wood Thrush, along with a few others, perhaps Scarlet Tanager, 
and a few “zeep” calls and maybe one or two “up seeps”. The audio is very hard 
to hear so there could easily be more. I didn’t pick out any for-sure 
Gray-cheeked Thrushes.  I should also point out that eBird requests that counts 
of nocturnal flight calls be entered under a specific protocol and in a very 
specific way. The reason is so that these counts of nocturnal calls do not skew 
the analysis of “stationary” and “traveling” counts that are used by day, when 
detecting birds is done much differently. More information on how eBird 
requests nocturnal counts be entered is here: 
http://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/1010492-entering-nocturnal-flight-call-counts
  Things that should be corrected on your checklist include changing the 
protocol from Stationary to Nocturnal Flight Call Count, changing the count of 
“passerine sp.” to X and moving the count of 500 into the notes field (although 
most of these are Swainson’s Thrush), and changing the answer to “are you 
submitting a complete checklist” to No.   Here in Pittsburgh the past two early 
mornings have been outstanding listening, with hundreds Swainson’s Thrush and 
many other calls just in the period between astronomical and civil twilights 
each morning. Gray-cheeked Thrushes have started moving through here too. When 
everything is analyzed I expect there will be in excess of 1000 calls of 
Swainson’s Thrush alone, and perhaps double that number for total flight calls, 
for each of the overnight periods Sept 9 and 10.  Good listening!  Geoff
