2 Warbler Calls

Recommended Posts

These were heard May 15 in south-central Kansas in a thick mixed forest habitat with a stream that runs through. I believe both are probably warblers, though I could be wrong. Thank you in advance for any help!

1. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/159193211 for the very high pitched  bird that sings loudly throughout most of the recordings (there are two that were merged into one). I could not spot the bird, it was staying in thick leaves up in the trees, there seemed to be another singing a little further away but this one sounded close to me. It sounded high up. The trees in this area were pretty tall and thick, and it was right by a stream, pretty deep into the forest.

2. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/159192991  This one sounded very close and pretty loud as well, but I could not spot him either no matter how hard I tried! He did not stay around long, and also sounded perhaps high up. The trees in this area were not as tall, and it was closer to the edge of the forest, and I only heard one. 

 

Let me know if I can provide any other details or if the links do not work. Thank you again for the help. I tried comparing these songs to warbler species on audubon but could not quite find a match, or perhaps didn't look at the right species?

Too much.....  ha...
1. I hear a cardinal, titmouse, eastern wood-pewee, a mosquito or some other insect at one point... A tennessee warbler is singing as well, fast pulsating or however you might describe it.  A vireo of some sort I think, and perhaps a northern mockingbird. Maybe a blue jay right at the end. There's a LOT going on in there... and I'm not sure which one you're hearing that you're asking about.

2. I'm not sure. Doesn't quite sound fast enough for a tennessee warbler... almost want to wonder if it's just a cardinal. My ears aren't great and sometimes I hear just part of a sound, and this year I've been hearing a LOT of partial cardinal songs that have thrown me by how fast they've been.

Forgot to add, maybe an indigo bunting in the first. And I think it's the Tennessee warbler you're asking about.  Fast high pitched...

Thank you so much for your reply!

Yes, lots going on in the first. Sorry I did not specify better- the "fast pulsating" one was the one in question, which you stated is a Tennessee Warbler, thank you!
I appreciate your identifying the rest as well, I think you are right with all the rest, I believe the vireo was a Red-eyed, there were at least two of them that I spotted in the area while trying to pick out the warbler, there was also a catbird around making some noise, but I wasn't sure if I got him in the recording, could be making the one making the mocking calls though.

As for the second- I didn't think about cardinal, but certainly could be, they have thrown me off a few times this year as well. I am pretty sure I have seen one just trill similar to this once before, so it very well could be an odd/partial song by one. He trilled like that 5 or 6 times without very long pauses.
