    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Usually the call is repeated 3 times, occasionally 2 or 4. Then a gap of a few seconds or minutes before it's repeated. Often the direction and distance may change between repeats.

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Thanks @pianoman . None of those sound are very close to my recording, but, as you say, various crow species can make calls unique to each individual, perhaps imitating other animals, birds or man-made sounds they hear, it could be that. There are certainly plenty of crows, rooks, jackdaws...

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Thanks @CleoCat , I already tried BirdNET and Merlin apps, but they couldn't get a good match. BirdNET suggested Eurasian Coot but with a very very low confidence score. I found recordings of the Eurasian Coot on line but they did not sound the same as my recording at all. I installed Warblr...

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Thanks @dandy @Andy Strachan that's certainly the closest match I've heard so far. But it seems that's not the Carrion Crow's "normal" call. I searched for other recordings and they all sound like typical "crow" calls. Perhaps this is some special call the Carrion Crow makes, to communicate...

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Thanks Delia, makes sense. I posted it in the Yorkshire section because that's where I live and only hear the call here. I'll update the original post and add location info.

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Hi Keith, thanks for the reply. It's definitely nothing like that, I know the sounds our smoke alarms and CO alarm makes when the batteries get low. The sound appears to move around in different directions, sometimes louder, sometimes quieter, as though closer or further away, so pretty sure...

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Thanks, but the media icon only allows me to post a link, not upload a file. Does that mean I have to find another site to upload the file to, then post a link here to it? When I try the upload video button and try to give it either MP3 or wav formats, I get an error.

    Can't identify bird, have audio file/recording

    Hi all, I have a bird that I can't identify from its call. Can anyone help? I hear this bird only while at home, most days, a few times each day. I'm not sure if it is around in winter, probably would not hear it from indoors with windows closed! I live in West Yorkshire, UK, a couple of miles...
