@Jonbie Apocalypse: Go for it (downloading now enabled)
@Chad H Clifford: Hi Chad: I don't think these little guys reach quite as far as you - at least, not this specific "brood". They're on the eastern US, from North Carolina to northern New York.
Lotsa Blue Jays!
@Marco Pesente: Toward the lake... the Moose arrived from the left, and walked behind the mic before re-entering the water and splashing away to the right.
Wonderful... takes me back many years to when I was growing up in Hampshire and would hear Skylarks all the time.
Looking at a spectrogram of this, it appears the lightning struck 30 or so metres from where you were recording. There's a small blip in the recording just before the main blast of sound, which I interpret to be the electrical interference from the lightning. The blast appeared just under 1/10 of a second after that, which works out to be around 30 metres. So yes, definitely very close!
Sorry to hear your computer suffered the consequences :-(
@dismalhiker: Great Crested Flycatcher
@petershute: Thanks, Peter. Yes, it was the Australian Raven I was asking about. Interesting call!
Love Ravens - thank you
Thank you - Raven vocalisations are my favourite among birds, and I liked this very much.
Excellent! As Mark said, they sound like musical instruments. Here (northeastern US) we get Bullfrogs - the basso profundo of the amphibian world :-)
I noticed something similar here in the Hudson Valley (New York) this year. As the season progressed, the bullfrogs seemed to become hoarse - but I suppose that isn't altogether surprising!
@StowfordNature: There are several species of thrush here in the US that use their double voice boxes to create haunting, flute-like calls. I could listen to them all day long.
The downloaded version is even better - much more detail and depth.
I like it!
What was that?
Nice. I think I'm going to head over to my local pond tonight to record more of the bullfrogs that are hanging out there.
I really like my SSM :-)
Very nice, Klas!
I listened to the entire recording, and I loved it, Mark. The occasional Green Frog croak is an added bonus!
A lovely recording. I grew up in England, and now that I live in the USA the Blackbird is one of the things I really miss. Thank you.
The 'peent' of the Woodcock covers a very wide spectrum, and those from here to the end appear to have been somewhat distorted by Soundcloud's transcoding process.
@Dan Dugan: Hi Dan - it wasn't very heavy hail, and just for a minute or two, but if you listen beginning at around 6:50 you can hear some 'dinging' - that's the hail hitting a bird feeder (I think). The hail here was pea-sized; a few miles further east it was golf ball-sized and did some damage.
I really like this - it is a great recording, and very easy to visualise this 'old lady' falling asleep.
What is this?
@Vicki Powys: That's a great description, Vicki. It certainly grabbed my attention at the time...
@wildearthvoices: Thanks, Mark. We'd much rather still be in NS, but these recordings certainly hep to bring it all back.
@BirderBarb: Until they run out of breath...
Hmmm... I'm pretty sure that's a Wood Thrush, not a Hermit Thrush. Nice recording, though - and not too far from where I live.
