  1. Trying to identify a bird

    The whistle we’ve been going crazy trying to identify was a grackle! Here’s a video. It does its regular slide whistle a couple of times and then at the end does the double whistle.
  2. Trying to identify a bird

    It’s a little close to the queedle queedle sound, but it sounds almost like it’s swallowing the end of the queedle for a lack of a better description. I guess it might be a jay if it’s modifying its call or imitating another birds. Blue jays have nested in that tree in the past. I wish I were more an expert on the sounds. So far the queedle queedle seems to be the closest at this point. Thanks again!

    I’ll check out the different blue jay sounds online. We do have blue jays in the backyard, but I usually recognize them from the kind of screech call.

    Thanks for responding! That’s not it, but what a beautiful bird! I figured out how to upload my video to YouTube so that I could post the link on here. This is it:

    I uploaded to YouTube - here is the link to my 4-second video.
  6. Trying to identify a bird

    Thank you for responding! - that’s not it, but some of the whistles are closer in pitch to the black-crested titmouse, unless there are some of its whistles I haven’t found online yet. It almost seems like I’ve heard this bird in the Caribbean - which doesn’t make sense. I also thought for a little bit that it might be some kind of tree frog. But we are a long ways from the islands.

    Thank you, I will try that!
  8. We’ve been hearing a bird whistle from our sycamore tree the last few days (April 10-13, 2018) here in Arlington, Texas. We live in a suburban area with a very large yard. The whistle is one short high followed by two medium-long lower tones. It’s not high pitched like a black capped chickadee or white throated sparrow. Here is a 4 second video just for sound that I uploaded to YouTube.
