Soft grunt from a salt marsh

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I heard a bird make several soft grunting sounds today from an expansive saltmarsh in Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in coastal Massachusetts.

You can hear the sounds at the :02, :06, and :16 marks in the attached file. The sounds are faint, but I’m hoping somebody out there will be able to tell me who made them! Thanks for trying!

I can hear them. Are there Gadwall there, because it sounds something like female GADW.

YES! There were gadwall in the area. I just listened to their calls online and I think you nailed the ID. I've never heard gadwall make any noise before, so I had never heard that sound. Thanks for the help!
