I’m sure that as I start to get a better collection of typical calls, I won’t do so much posting of clips. Perhaps I’ll be able to cut back and do a week at a time. However, so far it seems like every night brings something new that’s of interest to me. That said, this was a quiet night, and all the clips of interest came from this morning starting a little before dawn.
Raven Calls: These calls which I might describe as ‘caw-alk’ are fairly typical to hear from the Ravens around here, although perhaps not quite as common as the regular cawing call they make. Download Raven Calls
Northwestern Crow: A brief call by a Northwestern Crow. Sometimes there are lots of them around the neighborhood, but that does not seem to be the case currently. I thought the slight reverb/echo was interesting, but I’m not sure where it was coming from. Download Northwestern Crow
Crossbills: This is two clips recorded not too far apart. I believe the first clip is of Red Crossbills, and I think the second clip may be White-winged Crossbills, but I am uncertain. I’m hoping someone can confirm and/or clarify the difference in their calls for me. Download Crossbills
