  1. I think you’re both right. There were titmice in the area. It’s either an atypical call or I got confused because I haven’t heard them in several months. Thanks for the input.
  2. Hello everyone, I heard the bird in the attached recording yesterday in the woods in the White Mountains in NH. It stayed high up in the trees so I never got a look at it. It sounds like a cardinal, but it seems a little off. And the habitat was all wrong (interior, closed canopy forest). I appreciate your thoughts! 20240216_144251585.m4a
  3. Thank you all for the input! The orange legs are really throwing me off, but it sounds like leucism could explain that. The bird was much bigger than a least sandpiper. Sanderling is a possibility, although it wasn't really behaving like one. Still, that might be the most likely species. But I guess I'll never know for sure!
  4. I just found a small, VERY white shorebird on a mudflat in Rye, NH. It has orange legs and a black and orange bill. Pictures attached. It’s white-rumped sandpiper-sized. Is this a leucistic individual of a common species or something rare for the area? Thanks!
  5. Trying again to upload the second file. Unknown.wav
  6. Hey everyone, I heard the loud whistled song in the attached files from high up in the trees in a forested section of the Merrimack River in Concord, NH. It sounds closest to a Baltimore or orchard oriole, but it isn’t quite right for either. In the longer audio clip, it’s sings towards the middle and then again at the end. I’d appreciate your thoughts! Unknown.wav Unknown.wav Unknown 2.m4a
  7. In the attached audio clip, you can hear two call notes from a distant crossbill in Woodstock, New Hampshire. They’re faint, but audible. I’ve heard these a lot this summer and have been IDing them as white-winged because the notes are softer and a little more musical than a red crossbill’s. I’ve been pretty sure of that, but now I’m starting to doubt myself since people in my area are reporting red crossbills but not white-winged. What do you think?? Thanks for the help! Crossbill.m4a
  8. Haha I know, I’m just kidding. I haven’t mastered the weird sounds of the secretive marsh birds yet. And I sure as hell don’t know anything about the frog calls of Florida.
  9. I say cormorant. Its back looks scaly and brown without any white.
  10. This morning I heard a bird grunting occasionally from a thickly vegetated freshwater marsh in Fort Myers, FL. It’s gotta be a rail, coot, or gallinule. Attached are a couple of recordings. Try your best to ignore the grackles. Thanks! Grunt.m4a Grunt1.m4a
  11. Hi everyone, I recorded this bird this morning singing from the treetops in a cypress swamp in Naples, FL. It’s a three-part buzzy song. It was warbler sized, but I only got a very quick backlit look. My best guess is a northern parula singing a weird song… but I’m pretty sure that’s not it. Any other guesses? Thanks!!

  12. Yeah, I think you’re right. The streaking is kind of easy to see in one of the pics.
