    Possibly a nightjar? [AUDIO] (Greece, europe)

    On march 5th I was birding at a wetland/marsh, at aroung 4 pm (sun was still up, just a little cloudy) the area has lots of thick vegetation and reeds around, as well as short trees and bushes, and I heard this sound that may or may not have been a eurasian nightjar. It is not quite clear in the...

    Unknown bird audio in the Netherlands--Groningen

    A bird has been singing in front of my house since yesterday (day of posting: 26.02.21). I can't find it, but I did record its song.

    Singing garden bird (europe-greece)

    i recorded this bird in my garden this afternoon (around 4 pm). The bird was in a very thick tree so i could not see it. I think it sounds like a european starling but I am not sure. I have a very hard time identifying bird songs so if anyone has any ideas what it might be please reply :)

    audio of unknown garden singing bird

    My mother sent me this video of a singing bird (bird itself not shown in video, only its song can be heard), but I'm not 100% sure it was indeed singing, and I have been having a hard time IDing it... It's probably a common species. But what is puzzling me is the time of the year the bird was...

    Where I live, what would be the Black-Capped Chickadee's usual "fee-bee" song sounds different in Western Washington.

    I’ve collected an audio sample. It’s interesting, being that most people hear a 2 or 3 note “fee-bee” or “hey sweetie” call, but around here it consists of 5 notes and sounds more like “hey sweetie, sweetie” or “fee bee-bee bee-bee”, and the pitch decreases slightly between “words.”

    Alert sparrow watching me from the ground. I like how it has a slight crest. It was probably alert because I just pished or called it in.

    About a month ago, I heard him practicing his song ... Now he singing his heart out. Here is is perched at the top of the Mockingbirds' tree. The Mockers don't chase him because he is not after the suet.

    Song Sparrow in Barberry

    I planted this "Japanese Rose Glow" Barberry shrub many years ago because I love the dusty rose color, and the sparrows seem to love hiding in it. Perhaps their tiny little feet can fit between the tiny little thorns better than those of the larger birds! The shrub is starting to get...

    Song Sparrows have started hanging around my porch again! I guess they have finished up their nesting season. This one posed for me this morning while I was sitting on my porch.

    I love to sing!

    Year-round and very common in this area, but still very special, these birds love to make their presence known by perching on the highest treetops or utility wires and singing their clear, melodious songs.

    Taken at the Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline, San Leandro, California, USA. About a mile from the runways of the Oakland International Airport. Ironically I keep going out to photograph white-tailed kites, but the lousy weather means I get better close-range shots of sparrows. Go figure.
