  1. Thank you. Another common bird I see, and whose two sounds I know, but not this song. Hope to remember this next time on the field.
  2. Thanks a lot folks. I don't think I've ever been this confident on a wrong ID 🙂 Appreciate it.
  3. I was fairly confident it was a Northern Waterthrush. But I have some doubts now. So can someone confirm/deny? Waterthrush.m4a
  4. Thanks Benjamin for your thoughts. I haven't reported this bird to ebird yet (and I'm glad I didn't). I'll wait for more folks to chime in. I have another audio (from a different spot) which I'm more confident is a Northern Waterthrush. But I shouldn't be 🙂 So let me start another thread for that bird.
  5. Can you confirm if this is a Northern Waterthrush? Taken today (in MA). Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a yellow warbler with a different variation of its song. Northern_Waterthrush.m4a
  6. The wings don't look correct for a chimney swift. I suspect it's a European starling.
  7. Thanks everyone. I guess I still have a long way to go with learning sounds of birds, even those I see often. Interestingly, I heard the same song today on the trail. This time I scanned the tree trunk instead of the leaves. And sure enough, I saw the creeper singing.
  8. To me, it looks good for a female indigo bunting.
  9. I have some experience with their basic song, but not their calls. I'll wait for others to chime in. Thanks for your thoughts.
  10. I'm not able to put a finger on it. It did not sound like the typical, breeding warblers I'm familiar with. Any thoughts? warbler2.m4awarbler1.m4a
  11. It does not sound exactly like a great horned owl, but if it's an owl, I don't think it can be anything else. If not an owl, I'm thinking its a dog 🙂 owl.m4a
  12. Hi Sneat. I listened to the song again, a few times. I agree that it does sound like a Louisiana waterthrush! I'll report that to ebird. I really appreciate your help.
  13. Louisiana Waterthrush would be a really nice bird (but an expected bird per ebird). But somehow I'm not able to associate the song with the one you linked. May be my ears are out of tune 🙂 I'll wait for a few others to chime in. I appreciate your suggestion.
  14. Not a problem. I made the same mistake myself. I was fairly convinced it was a bank swallow based on the visual. The only reason I considered the option of tree swallow was because of the location (I've never seen a bank swallow at this small pond. And I still haven't :)). Thanks again.
  15. I was told by the ebird reviewer (and after he consulted with two other experts) that this is a young tree swallow. I thought you might be interested in knowing.
  16. warbler.m4a In this audio clip, it sings twice (once around 3 sec, and then around 10 sec). I suspect it's a migrant warbler, or a breeding warbler (but not singing it's typical song), or some thrush 🙂 I'm a little lost on this one. So your help is definitely appreciated.
  17. Blackburnian.m4a The audio is named Blackburnian because that is what I was hoping for, but I think it's a black-throated blue warbler 🙂 Do you agree?
