  1. While watching this rabbit, I heard a lot of wonderful birdsong and did not see any birds. If anyone can help identify the birds, I'd appreciate it. Thank you in advance. You might have to click on the image to hear the audio.
  2. Standing in a small Jewish cemetery in Portland, Oregon, I heard these two birds communicating with each other in an area where there were no tombstones. Hopefully someone can help identify the birds. I saw them briefly from a distance, and their wings were pointed. Swallows? Swifts? You might have to click on the image to hear the sound. Thank you.
  3. I can't identify which species this is; Cassin's or Purple Finch. I'm pretty sure it's a Purple but I can't find any good enough Cassin's Finch audio recordings online. <iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/AjFDb8olSD4?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  4. I recorded this today in South Carolina; it seems to be a male calling loudly and a female chattering simultaneously. I could see the male vaguely and he had a white breast and a stripe on his head; perhaps a Carolina Wren? I'm utterly new to birding so any help is appreciated. Thanks! Unknown Birds 2.m4a
  5. So, I've never heard this animal noise before but I heard it tonight with my family outside my house. We believe it's a bird but we can't be sure because it's night and we couldn't figure out where it was. It seemed to get louder when we talked louder. There was also a cat outside curious about it who was wearing a bell (We know the cat was not making the noise). Any clue what it might be? I feel like it could be a baby or some released pet, but I have no idea. I've never identified bird sounds. Squawking Copy 2.m4a Squawking Copy.m4a
  6. Two birds chipping together along the shore of a major river in northeast Illinois yesterday: 15 second audio on Clyp.It. From a distance and from the sound, I thought they were Downy Woodpeckers, but when I walked closer, I was surprised to see two small dark birds about the size of Winter Wrens flitting right along the edge of the water and the reeds. The lighting was so poor that I could not get a photo of either bird, but here's a photo of the habitat:
  7. Flycatcher recording

    Took these recordings today in Vermont. The flycatcher was seen, but we couldn't get a photo of it. Which flycatcher do you think it is? Thanks! https://goo.gl/photos/8KXPDR3oQUrxpYpQ9 https://goo.gl/photos/6iPBeFNcAZFoHxh99
  8. Which thrushes are singing these songs? The first was recorded on May 21st, the second was recorded today (both in Vermont). thrush.m4a thrushsong.m4a
  9. Hi all, my mom inadvertently captured this birdsong near her condo pool in metro Atlanta the morning of July 4. Says she's been hearing it and wondering what it was. Can anybody help? The only calls I'm rock-solid on are cardinals :-P Thanks! http://tinypic.com/r/20r1t1c/9
  10. Hello! I was wondering if any of you could help me identify the bird in this recording. I think I may have heard it once before in the past, but I don't recognize it. I'm thinking maybe it's a migrating bird. This was SE Pennsylvania at about 9AM on a cool, cloudy day. Any thoughts? ~Hiker Birdcall.mp3
  11. Michigan Audio ID

    Audio Recording: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S28906247 (see passerine sp.) Description: On April 12 in Grand Rapids, MI (42.956696, -85.605850) in a flooded, open deciduous woodland I had a bird calling which I recorded, but ignorantly passed off at the time as FOSP. I don't think FOSP is the case, but I also can't figure it out. The bird was calling erratically during my 5-minute stay at that point, giving the same 3-pitched double-banded 3/3.5-6/6.5 kHz whistle notes. The bird did not come into aggressive pishing or EASO playback, unlike many other species present. Also present at that location were NOCA, RWBL, COGR, TUTI, AMGO, SOSP, FOSP, AMRO, BLJA, HAWO, and RBWO. I'd appreciate any insights you might have!
  12. Can you help me ID this bird by its song? It's been hanging around for a few weeks now, but I've never been able to catch a glimpse of it. The audio recording was taken on June 20 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio (44221). It's in a residential neighborhood with lots of mature trees. The bird seems to stay hidden in the trees, and doesn't come to the backyard feeder. It's very vocal, though. Can you help? Thanks!New Recording 5.m4a
  13. I'm trying to identify the sing-songy bird that's in the background of this audio recording. The recording was taken June 20 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio (44221). The bird has been very vocal for a few weeks now, but stays hidden in trees. I have not been able to visually catch a glimpse of it. It's in a residential neighborhood with lots of mature trees. Can you help? Thanks! New Recording 5.m4a
  14. I heard this around midnight. This is in an urban part of southeastern Wisconsin. I'm sure someone knows exactly what makes this sound, but I'm also sure I've never heard it in my back yard before. Just a warning about the sound file: it's really poor quality and quiet since I recorded it on my phone, but I used Audacity to dull down some of the air noise so hopefully you can hear it with the volume medium-high. Thanks for your help! 20140814.mp3
  15. I heard this call from a medium-small tree while walking the dogs here in Topsfield, Massachusetts on July 4, 2014 at 5:30am. I quickly recorded the sound on my smartphone and have attached the small .MP3 audio file to this post. External links to both .MP3 and .WAV formats of the audio have also been included below. I have looped the single call once in the audio file to make it more convenient to listen to, but there was actually a 15 second pause between similar sounds. A friend suggested some kind of woodpecker or the like, but I can't find an online version close enough. One note, however: my friend also suggested that there is some possibility, however small, that it could be a squirrel instead of a bird. Can anyone help me? All suggestions are welcome.

  16. What is this nocturnal North American bird? The rhythmic chirp or "scritch" is heard in the beginning of the audio file. At the end of the file is the sound it makes when it flies. nocturnalbird.wav
  17. I really like the new audio enhancements in the 7.01 update but my complaint is the audio levels of the bird sounds is now very noticeably and significantly reduced. I realized this when I was on a hike yesterday. There are Eastern Towhees everywhere at my location and I always have fun calling in ore or two because they immediately respond (as does the Carolina Wren that lives in my yard). When I played the Towhee song for a Towhee that was ten feet away I could hardly hear it on my iPhone 5S (audio max on the phone and app - and my son even quickly remarked about it since he's familiar with the app) and then the Towhee laughed louder than the iBird song I was playing ;-) Is there any way to get the volume levels back to where they were pre-update, please? The level is great on my iPad but I'm not taking that on the hikes. Thanks for you consideration (I know you're pretty busy right now).
