Started playing around with recording audio today for the first time, I think it went pretty well. I'm pleased with how the Hutton's Vireo recordings turned out.  Nothing much existing though, just lots of super cooperative Anna's Hummingbirds and Hutton's Vireos. Also briefly went to look for Rufous-crowned Sparrows, and when I found them they were acting a lot like Wrens. Not something I've seen them do before.

What all did you do to edit your audio?

I haven't quite gotten to that yet, so this audio is completely unedited except for chopping off some of the beginning of a few of the recordings.

Oh wow, my recordings always have tons of background fuzz even in a quiet place. Yours are great!

Nothing much, but there were a few decent birds around today. I spent an hour chasing around what I thought was a weird sparrow that kept giving a call I didn't recognize, but when I finally laid eyes on it, it was just a Red-winged Blackbird, admittedly of the Red-winged subspecies and not a California bicolored. I guess it was a call that only Red-winged subspecies give.

Nice shots! I still haven't been able to get close to one of them buggers...

Even when you can get close they move so much that it's hard to get a good photo. That's 5 of 200.

Are Siskins not friendly down there?

I can get within 3 feet of them sometimes, they almost rival chickadees in their approachability. 

No. Ours aren't half froze to death!
