Another Florida Bird Call

Recommended Posts

From 3/29/21 at Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve north of Saint Augustine.

Bachman's Sparrow has been reported there on ebird.  I think my recording sounds like Bachman's Sparrow but I have not experience with this bird and I did not actually see it.


Is there something else that I am overlooking?

When I have heard Bachmann's, it's been high to low, and this one sounds like it is going the other way. I feel like I KNOW what that is, but can't place it. Like, I'm going to feel dumb when someone reminds me. The one with the magic ear that I know of is @Liam

Bachman's Sparrow have two main elements of their song: a whistle/buzz introductory note and a trill following after (which can be followed by another whistle and trill in some variations). This sounds like a variation of the trill of the Bachman's Sparrow but it's not; it's one of many Carolina Wren songs. There's no whistle/buzz like in Bachman's Sparrow songs.
