Location: midtown Tucson, Arizona Concealed primarily in vegetation, usually higher up. ________________________________ Hi all, We've been hearing this song for about three weeks, and I've been trying to identify it since then. I haven't gotten a good look at the bird(s), but I think I saw a pair on a wire hanging over the street. They look smaller than a Robin, short-beaked, and basically non-descript from a distance. I'm not sure if I saw a slight crest (not prominent) on one of the birds, possibly the male. The characteristic of this song is that it warbles pretty frenetically and ends the majority of the time with 1-3 descending raspy calls that are sharp and short. Thank you. Birdsong-edit-merged.mp3
I am in an urban neighborhood in central San Diego, CA, and for the past couple weeks (late April, early May 2020) I have been hearing this (attached) bird just about every morning. I've never been able to locate it, so have not seen it. In fact, as soon as I step outside my house, it goes quiet. It reminds me of a bobwhite! (I'm from the midwest) but we shouldn't have them here in San Diego. Song Sleuth is not helpful at all because of the chatter of the other birds in the background. New Recording 5.m4a
I live in Knoxville, TN. The other day a turkey walked up my street, right in the middle of the city. It's an urban area, but the neighborhood has patches of woods here & there. Please let me know if I'm wrong... I think it's a female Wild Turkey. She wandered up the street toward a busy 4-lane thoroughfare. I ran through some nearby yards trying to skirt around and turn her back in the opposite direction. I think I succeeded in the end, but it was hard to be sure. She did turn around, but disappeared into a wooded area. So is she a Wild Turkey? If so, it raises the question: Where are the rest of them? There would have to be a flock somewhere... Attached are a couple of pics & here's a link to a 7 second video clip (MP4) in a Google Drive folder along with some pics extracted from the clip. (I got the MP4 by accidentally turning the camera to video. Originally it was upside down—I had to find an app to flip it over.)
