  1. Was able to get nine owl species in a week here in Idaho. Saw all of them except Flammulated. SEOW, LEOW, GHOW, GGOW, NSWO, FLOW, BUOW, BANO, WESO. I only got photos of four of them because I enjoy looking at them more than photographing them ?

    I'm pretty confused by this. Obviously there are chats in the second recording, but you're saying the call in question is also a chat? Here's the House Wren call I'm referring to: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/56882

    The first recording sounds far too sickly and weak for Summer Tanager IMO, but hey I could be wrong.

    The quality is completely wrong for HOWR. There's far too few notes and it's very clear and bright sounding. Here's the difference in spectrograms:


    One major thing that makes me lean SUTA is the fact that every phrase is about the same length. BHGR tend to have wide variety between phrases, giving it the feel that it's alternating between short and long phrases. I'm not getting a "sickly" vibe - you might be getting that in part just because it's in the background of a fuzzy recording.
