WR: Night Thirty-nine

Another quiet night weather-wise. Despite the good listening conditions throughout the night, I did not pick up much on the recording. There was a distant Western Screech-Owl near 7am that I was barely able to pick out from the almost as distant raven calls. A raven gave a brief croak around 2:30am, perhaps an interesting dream? The first morning bird of the day was a Bald Eagle just before 6:30, the Ravens were next about 10 minutes later.

Mystery Call: I have no idea what made this noise.

Songbird Chirps: Context seems to be fairly important for identification at times. I’m pretty sure these are chirps from a Dark-eyed Junco right outside the window. I know it’s a small song bird, but without being able to see the bird, I’m not positive about the id. Normally such chirps would alert me and I would look to see the bird. Most likely, even a quick flash would be enough to id it at that point, but without more context, I’m not confident in the id with just the sounds.

    Maybe it was the Kooshnika–half man half river otter

    Perhaps so. I’ve been reading some Tlingit stories lately and River Otters play prominently in several of them.
