[sc_embed_player_template1 fileurl=http://www.sitkanature.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/20081002_gull_0630.mp3]Gull: Gull recorded at 06:30. I don’t know which species, but probably a Glaucous-winged Gull. If not that, then most likely a Herring or Thayer’s Gull. Download Gull

In this recording, it sounds like there are at least two, with one of them flying over the backyard while calling. Download Ravens Calling

[sc_embed_player_template1 fileurl=http://www.sitkanature.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/20081002_highcalls_0725.mp3]High Calls: The high frequency calls in this recording are most likely some combination of Golden-crowned Kinglet, Brown Creeper, and/or Chestnut-backed Chickadee. I’m not confident in my ability to distinguish them consistently yet. Throughout the recording in the background gulls can be heard down on Indian River. There are some other birds that also show up in the background. Download High Calls
