    Audio from Amazonian Ecuador - PART 2

    Hi all, I had a great response from the community last time I posted audio files from my stint as a researcher in Ecuador. I'm gradually going through old recordings and trying to piece together some identifications, so if anyone finds any of these songs and calls recognisable, please let me...

    Alarm Call: European Robin (Erithacus rubecula)

    Hi all. I managed to film some birds with their alarm calls. I think this is the high pitched alarm call which also some other species are making. In this case it is the hight pitched alarm call of a robin (please correct me when I am wrong):

    Calls of Green Catbirds

    In December 2014, when I was in the Bunya Mountains National Park, Queensland, Australia, I was able to hear the Catbird calls.

    While I was on the Heron Island, in the Great Barrier Reef, the Black Noddies came back in the early evening or late afternoon to rest on the many trees on that island.

    Eurasian Skylark

    This was the first Skylark I was able to film. I have heard Skylark singing when I was about to leave a nature reserve and passing a field. When I stopped the car, I first checked the field further away because I did not expect this Skylark to be so close to the border of the field with the...

    These male Northern Shovelers are so beautiful, you cannot stop photographing or filming them. This one was swimming in a brook in a nature reserve in Lower Saxony in Germany. Although this clip is a bit wobbly I am sharing it, not only because of its beauty but also because you can hear him...

    Unidentified bird call just outside Winchester, England

    I normally pride myself on being able to identify most birds in SE England by their calls alone. But I was walking along a dense tree and hedge-lined footpath that ran between two farmers' fields and I heard a call that's defeated me. And I couldn't see the bird either even though it was...

    Dawn home backyard bird calls (TEST #1 ME66 + K6 + Sony A7Riii)

    Got my Sennheiser ME66 + K6 years ago but can't seems to get results I want/satisfied that time with Sony A7Riii. Decided gave it a try again today. Results not perfect but acceptable satisfied with newly added accessories Movo WST220, received few days ago and that helps filter out some...
