Bird Sound from Larimer County Colorado

Recommended Posts

Recorded on 7/14/21 at Fossil Creek Natural Area in Larimer County.

It was on the east path from the parking lot through a prarie area with knee high dense foliage and then grasses above maybe 3 feet high.

This bird was very close to me on the path.  There was also Lark Sparrow, Western Kingbird, Grasshopper Sparrow, and House Finch nearby.

Birdnet keeps giving me Ash-throated Flycatcher or Rufous-tailed Scrub-Robin.  The former would be unusual and the latter is impossible.

I can't imagine an Ash-throated Flycatcher was hidden down in 18 inches of scrub. 

Any ideas of something else I could investigate?  This is not my normal birding area and I would guess I am overlooking some possibility.

I am going to try to put some short recordings here all taken in the same spot.  Turn the volume up.

Western Meadowlark. 

Yes, I agree with WEME. They have a call and rattle that are much less associated with the species, which makes sense given the beauty of their songs.
