  1. Hi everyone, I posted these recordings a couple of months ago but didn’t get too far. I recorded this bird on 11/1/2021 at dawn at Bird Rookery Swamp in Naples, Florida. Try to ignore the clicking sound of my car’s engine!

    I’ve spent some time today trying to figure out what this is. The closest match seems to be black-bellied whistling duck. It’s not identical to calls of that species I’ve listened to online, but it’s close. Am I right or wrong??

    Thanks for your help!

  2. Hello, I heard the song in the attached file this morning (30 minutes before sunrise) in a forested wetland in Naples, FL. The loud, musical, multiple-note whistle is clearest at about the 3 and 6 seconds marks on the recording.

    Thanks advance! I’m not very familiar with birds from this part of the country, so I apologize if this is something very common and boring.

  3. I saw this bird yesterday at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in coastal Massachusetts. The bird was bigger than a peep and smaller than nearby stilt sandpipers. 
     

    I wish I was able to get a better photo, but this was the best I could do. The overall size, bill size and shape, markings on the neck and chest, and leg color has me thinking Baird’s sandpiper. However, I’m not sure the photo is good enough for me to make that call. Your thoughts are appreciated!
