? Birds (2 species) by ear


Recommended Posts

3 May 2020 Baldwin co AL; suburban yard

One bird calls at 1, 5, 9, 15...

Second species (I think multiple individuals, though) quick, high whistles (?cardinals)

I recognize the Laughing Gulls calling from overhead.  They are on their way from our local dump to the one in Pensacola.  I could set my watch by them. 😄

The high pitched calls are not cardinals, but the first bird call you are asking about is. I think the high pitched ones are either a warbler or a southeastern species I am not familiar with. I also hear what sounds like a red-bellied woodpecker, although it could be something else I am not familiar with

Like my recent post of the Carolina Wren song, this is a new Northern Cardinal song/variation to me.  I know only the "Whoit, Whoit, Whoit" & "Birdie, Birdie, Birdie" I've always recognized as Northern Cardinal.  The variability in each species' songs certainly make ID by ear challenging, to say the least.
