Question Any idea what kind of bird this is?

Hi,

I'm trying to identify a species of bird (or at least get in the neighborhood) based on its call... the sample is here:

I believe it's tropical... Any idea?

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed!

Can't really tell but one of our geniuses should come up with a name

BTW, a warm welcome to you from those of us on staff here at BirdForum

Assuming you meant this was recorded in your neighborhood in Maryland, whatever it is, it’s not a native bird (if it’s a bird at all), I’ve never heard anything like it. Maybe some musical Christmas decoration?

@howiewu,

Thank you for your assessment. I am approaching this completely blindly... I don't know the origin of the recording, and I'm tasked with emulating it on a larger scale for an A/V project. I'm hoping to get a ballpark idea of what species it sounds like to anyone who may have an idea.

For all I know, it may indeed be synthetic, which may be how I'll have to approach it for my project. Still holding out hope that it's at least vaguely representative of an identifiable bird species, if not itself a real bird recording.

Thanks again for the response!

-Mark

Sorry I think I misunderstood what you said about “neighborhood” in your original message (I read too hastily). Regardless, I have no idea what it is, hopefully others can help you, although without location info, that may be difficult.
