When on a camping trip I heard an unknown song. It sounded quite like a vireo; the tune was the same, pauses were same length, etc. It sounded like this, "perdle-dee (second note of this phrase was higher) a-wee(second note was lower) dee-a-wee (same tune throughout)." Hope it can be ided. (not an Eastern Wood-pewee)

Another qu. . . do American and Fish Crows flock together often? I had a flock of crows fly over my campsite and some gave a nasal "uh-uh" and others the classic "caw caw."

Thanks, JB

Why do you think it wasn't a vireo?

I don't think it very likely that Fish Crows and American Crows will share the same flock, but they will occupy the same area. I've never seen them together but I have been in situations where I can see one species in front of me and another a couple of hundred yards away.

I checked all vireos calls that are in my area and it did not sound like them. Thanks Grandpa about the crows. I thought it was strange to see them in the same flock.

The first note of the Wood Thrush call is similar to the call I heard. . . but the rest is not similar at all.

Can't give you much help with the call, but I used to frequently see mixed flocks of Fish and Am. Crows when I lived in Florida, especially when they were feeding near water.

Thanks. And it was by a large lake. . . so I guess that explains that.

Thanks for the link. I am leaning on Wood Thrush now because it sounded similer to some of the calls.

Wood thrush tends to have a very distinctive quality to its song.
