Yellow throated vireo? (audio only)


Recommended Posts

Today in southern Nevada.  Normally a yellow throated vireo would be crazy here but two days ago one was photographed by many experts here.  Today heard what I thought was a vireo calling, started Merlin and it was very sure the calling bird was a yellow throated, which seemed a very strange coincidence. I increased the volume and re-ran it through Merlin, same result.  Expected vireos here are Bell's, Cassin's, plumbeous.  Thanks

FWIW, I ran it through Merlin (located in TN, where YTVI are breeders here) and it only popped up as a Carolina Wren.

At the time, Merlin ID'ed as yellow throated vireo.  Later I increased the volume and ran it through Merlin again, same result.  Carolina wren would be even crazier here.  🙂  As I mentioned, a yellow throated vireo WAS photographed and recorded here by several top people two days prior.  It seemed quite an incredible coincidence.  Also, I noticed on the Merlin app, under sounds for this bird, there are 4 calls, the second one sounds just like what I recorded, many fast raspy calls.

Could you upload the recording to ebird as bird sp. so that we could compare your recording with other similar species?
