  1. Heard this woodpecker today in Western NY. It threw me off because it kind of sounded in between a Red-bellied and Red-headed. The call is at the end of the recording and you can hear it drumming somewhere in the middle (the drum is not right for Yellow-bellied sapsucker or at least not from my experience). For reference the habitat is a large forest with tall pine and deciduous trees with a swampy area as well. The habitat seemed ok for Red-headed but obviously Red-bellied would be much more likely.

    I couldn't get a closeup, but if this video comes through, do you recognize the flight? It is of a “boil” of 6 flying in southern NH. The underside of wings in white as well as part of the tail, so sharped shinned hawk? Your identifier led me to red-shouldered hawk.

    Your post will get more responses if you make a new topic. My guess is broad-winged, but I honestly am having a hard time ruling out turkey vulture from the video.

    Look like turkey vultures to me

    These are all posted under my topic but don't seem to have anything to do with my original post.

  3. These recordings are from today in WNY. I’ve been hearing/seeing this bird for about a month now at sunset. It’s too hard to make out what it is because of the light level but today I finally got some recordings. I thought it matched a Merlin based on the frequency of the call but the pitch doesn’t match. There were two smaller birds (what I assume to be the ones calling) and one that was a little larger. They would sit at the top of a pine tree and then all fly off and call together.

    The call at the very beginning sounds like Coal Tit, but I don’t have enough experience to say it’s 100% not marsh tit.

    Hm so I had also determined it's definitely a Tit species but I had settled on Great Tit. I honestly have basically no experience with European birds though so who knows.
