    Two-notes sound ID. N.Sweden

    Eurasian Siskin alarm call for me too.

    Warbler call, Cley Norfolk today

    Agree with Reed Warbler - rather typical song structure IMO.

    audio, waders NW England

    Great recordings and for me they sound natural, not enhanced. The only "problem" are the Canada Geese with their loud "noise"! I´m hearing Oystercatcher and Little Ringed Plover in the foreground and Eurasian Curlew in the background, perhaps Common Ringed Plover calls from 1'03'' on.

    Bird call, Cottbus, Germany

    The link doesn´t work for me.

    What bird makes this sound?

    Juvenile Tawny Owl begging call for me too.

    Stock Dove or something else? - Leicestershire

    A slightly aberrant Stock Dove for me too.

    Grey wagtail? Cottbus, Germany

    In the very end of the recording there is a sound that resembles Grey Wagtail call a bit. It's all the same Blackbird however. It´s alarming through the recording with different alarm call types.

    Warbler, Geneva area, CH

    I would call this as Blackcap. The elements of Blackcap song can be heard clearly: diverse subsong that ends with flute sounds. I admit this is a talented individual and the subsong is not the most typical. The subsong of Blackcap varies a lot however, and it can also imitate phrase structures...

    ID from call - UK

    Sounds good for Western Yellow Wagtail.

    Weird Robin - Muenster, Germany

    A very odd song indeed. The beginning of the phrase with a high streched note is somewhat resembling Robin, and I think Robin is the most probable solution. However the consistent repetition of the phrases doesn´t sound like Robin at all. It remains a mystery... I found only one aberrant song of...

    Sound ID, Guangxi, China

    Hello, IMO sounds good for Eurasian Hoopoe. Compare e.g. https://www.xeno-canto.org/560376

    gentle song - Poland

    I think it´s impossible to identify this bird. Could perhaps be a part of the song of Robin IMO but best to leave it unidentified.

    Acro/Iduna warbler, Dhaka December 2020

    The song sounds good for Booted Warbler with characteristic faint start and rising volume. Also the photos look good for Booted IMO, although it would be nicer to have a little bit sharper photos with this species.

    Mystery call, Fife, Scotland 10/10/16

    Sounds good for YBW song! Also the sonogram looks good.

    Warbler ID, June Denmark

    There is indeed something of a Booted Warbler in the song. It doesn´t sound quite right for me however. I find the song too monotonous for a Booted (and for Sykes too). That can also be seen on the sonogram. The ambitus is narrow and the note structure is very uniform compared to Booted. In the...
