    Yesterday: an American Goldfinch I heard singing, first time I IDed one singing. The only reason I recognized it right away was: I was wondering if it really sounded like potato chips, so I listened to it(it doesnt IMO) and thus my subconscious learned a song.I recognized it as oh that one bird wait its that one bird thatdoesntsound like potato chips that one bird is a AMGO! Is there a term for say: looking in a field guide, seeing a WBNU in it, then seeing a WBNU a few weeks later, and you know immediately thats a WBNU.? If there isnt there should be.

    Yep, that's how a learned a lot of my bird vocalizations.

    Haha, Im trying to put it up at a park sometime(there any rules against that?) because my yard doesnt have spots to hang it. Havent gotten mice in the birdseedyet, not even the stuff in the garage.

    Be careful and keep stuff well sealed, mice may be attracted over time. They'll easily bite through soft plastic as well. I keep my birdseed in a bucket with a lid, and that's in the basement.
