Bearded reedling, treecreepers, yellowhammer -- audio -- Cottbus, Germany (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Can anyone help with a few tentative IDs? All from a lake/reed area near Cottbus, Germany. Audio files for each are attached; Merlin thinks that the "treecreepers" file has first short-toed, then Eurasian treecreepers (both are present in the general area); the others we tentatively ID as yellowhammer (not so exciting, but nice to have on my monthly list) and bearded reedling (which would be very exciting for us!).

Hi, here's my wife's recording of the suspected reedling, in case it helps! Thanks. :)
