This week’s shopper article references the following audio file. It was recorded from 10-11pm on September 15th from my back yard, in Hancock New Hampshire. I edited it to remove the dead space, leaving a clip about 90 seconds long that features almost 200 bird call notes, each one representing a different bird headed south over my house.
The file consists of Swainson’s Thrush, Veery, American Redstart, Blackpoll Warbler, and a few more. Later this week, I will be uploading some key spectrograms from the file and I will also annotate it so you can put a bird’s name against each call note. More to come!
