  1. 22 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard I recognize the usual Carolina Chickadee call toward the end of the recording; the one I don't recognize is the high-pitched call, heard mostly in the first 24 seconds. BirdNet ID'd as Pacific Slope Flycatcher, but that would be a little weird here. 2021-09-22 1342ed2.wav
  2. 27 Sept 2021 Baldwin co. AL; small bayside public park with pier & beach & thinly-wooded (pine, cypress, oak) walking trail adjacent to park's drive 1. European Starling vs. ?--small flock of 5 2. European Starling (different individual than #1)-it was perched in a tree with some other unidentified songbirds and a Cooper's Hawk took one of the group before I could ID 3. Marsh Wren vs. Carolina Wren who saw something he shouldn't have

  7. October 6-9, 2021 https://southalabamalandtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/BirdFest-2021-Schedule-4.pdf
  8. 16 Aug 2021 Baldwin co. AL; heavy oak/pine woods with adjacent wetland (seep, springs) Eastern Wood-Peewee (due to the long wings & tail) vs. other flycatcher sp. He flew down to a dead limb just a few feet above the ground--I think to investigate me rather than forage as I did not see him sally or flycatch.
  9. 13 Sept 2021 Baldwin co., AL; bayside public park; heavily wooded; cypress swamp, pine-oak uplands, marsh, stream 1. Eastern Wood Peewee vs. Empidonax sp. Does his qualify as an eye-ring? 2. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher vs. ?
  10. Baldwin co. AL Sept 2021 Hi, All. We have had resident Barred Owls for the 20+ years we have lived in our suburban neighborhood. They call frequently (and raucously) at night and commonly in the daytime, also, and it is not unusual for them to fly through or perch for a time in the yard. My question: Other than mating season & contact calls between mates/family members, at what other times would a Barred Owl hoot? I ask, because a couple of days ago, in the late afternoon (still full daylight), a lone Barred was hooting from fairly low in a tree, then dropped to the ground behind some shrubbery, then flew back into the canopy to a different perch. It looked as though he/she were taking prey, but I thought it odd the owl would call attention to itself with hooting if that were the case. There was no reply from any other owl that I could hear. Thoughts?
  11. 21 Aug 2021 Baldwin co. AL; small seasonal freshwater pond 1. Blue-winged Teals 2. Greater Yellowlegs
  12. 22 Aug 2022; Baldwin co. AL; heavily wooded unimproved acreage with oak/pine/poplar; abundant springs/seeps; adjacent longleaf pine stand; bird high in canopy, gleaning & hanging "chickadee-like" among heavy grapevines
  13. 04 Aug 2021 Baldwin co. AL; suburban yard; feeding hurriedly on pokeberries; in constant motion, hopping quickly through shrub There were 2 individuals, both the same in coloring, etc. I hesitated calling female YEWA, because at least one had visible streaking on the underside
  14. 31 July 2021 Cleburne co. AL (north Alabama, Appalachian (Blue Ridge) chain). Heavily-used primitive campground, public swimming/fishing lake and picnic pavilions. We were there in the wee hours so there were only two other hikers and 1 fisherman about. We were on a training hike, so no camera, but saw 2 chestnut-capped sparrows that stayed with one another, alternately foraging on the ground and calling from the surrounding scattered pines. I thought at the time they were Chipping Sparrows, but the calls sounded a little different as they weren't long trills. 20210731_080533 - Copyed.wav
  15. 21 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. AL; heavy mixed hardwood forest with incorporated wetland sink & adjacent to pine savannah Heard only. 20210721_093159 - Copyed.wav
  16. 31 Jul 2021 Cleburne co. AL; (north Alabama, Appalachian(Blue Ridge) chain); hiking trail through heavy oak/hickory/chestnut mountain forest poss_BLGR_20210721_093159 - Copy.wav
  17. 28 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. .AL Until recently, most brown birds I glimpsed at the feeder were female House Finches, but a day or so ago, we had a male cardinal show up with its adopted Brown-headed Cowbird "child" which it began feeding. Now I am questioning any brown, plain, somewhat streaky-breasted bird I see. Differentiating marks?
  18. 22 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. AL; public park & campground on island at delta; estuarine environment with piney/mixed hardwood forest 1 & 2: I heard birds singing in Black Willow trees and then this bird flew out; I thought it was going to be an Orchard Oriole, but now wondering if it might be a Painted Bunting. 1. 2. Recording: 20210722_092043 - Copyed.wav--this is what I heard before the bird flew 3. Same general area: 20210722_092624 - Copyed.wav 4. Not sure of this ID b/c of the eye ring
  19. 23 Jul 2021 Baldwin co. AL; sand spit at mouth of delta (river into bay) 1. Ignoring the Laughing Gulls, I see 2 Caspian, 1 Royal, and numerous Gull-billed & Least. Anybody else hiding in the group? 2. ?Forsters (BIF on left)
  20. I thought Red-eyed, but the cadence and pitch seemed a little different, but it was difficult to hear the bird over the cacophony of background sounds from the cicadas, etc. 20210714_101826 - Copyed.wav
  21. 16 Jul 2021; bayside public park with heavily-wooded oak/hickory/pine/cypress, heavy understory; swamp/marsh/beach. Call in question is marked with yellow dot. 20210716_092215 - Copyed.wav
  22. I think the first bird (within the first 2 secs of the recording) is a REVI and may be the same bird as in my earlier post. Marked by yellow line. The second bird sounds like the first part of a Yellow-billed Cuckoo's call, but he never finished that I heard. Could it be something else? Marked by yellow dot. 20210714_101744 - Copyed.wav
  23. 14 July 2021 Baldwin co. AL; bayside park with heavily-wooded trails; oak/pine/hickory/cypress My best guess is Great-crested Flycatcher, but I'm not sure about that ID. He was amongst a group of Carolina Chickadees.
  24. 21 Apr 2021 Dauphin Island, Mobile co., AL I thought this might be a female/immature Ruby-throated, but in the pics, the bill looks too large for that species.
  25. 09 Jun 2021 Baldwin co. AL; delta/estuarine habitat The fairly even call throughout. 20210609_101343 - Copyed.wav
