  1. 145, with latest being Cackling Geese. I have the only sighting of a Summer Tanager in the county. Prior to all the lockdowns I had decided to do a Big Year for the yard anyway. My high was 117 from last year. I’m at 58 so far this year and am 3 for 3 this year on Big Day highs, by month.
  2. It’s there, but it is extremely soft.
  3. I use this mic with my phone, and fuzzy windscreen over the mic. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004XC6KHS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. I removed all the crickets and frogs. When I boosted the calls it distorted them too much though. I think it is good for Long-eared. 213695081_01.LEOWwav.wav
  5. I’ve used the flank coloring to distinguish cismontanus and the lone Oregon I’ve seen. I’ve had a male and female cismontanus showing up this winter. The male has dark grey mixed with some brown/rufous in the flanks. The female mostly grey and some brown flanks, but obvious slate hood compared to the males black hood. Oregon had entirely brown/rufous flanks. To add to the confusion between the two, someone on iNat thinks the male may actually be an Oregon.
  6. Pretty sure this guy has rabies. Lethargic, walking in circles, weird leg movements, took all day Sunday just to move 100 feet. Sitting down in the valley still this morning with very little movement.
  7. My Cackling versus Canada My favorite as it looks like he has bodyguards
  8. Number of species has been relatively normal. Junco numbers are down severally. No doubt due to lack of snow so far this winter in the state. No Pine Siskin this year, and Carolina Wren has not shown up.
  9. Is there a listserve for your state or area? You could ask on there also, or search the archives. http://birding.aba.org
  10. Trumpeter Swans calling due to the nearby fireworks just after midnight.
