Heard from the shore of a lake, most likely in trees:


Small finch-like bird flyovers -- this site is popular with migrating finches, e.g. Red Crossbills:



Different call, heard last week, 8 or so small birds:


Thank you so much in advance.

Recording 1 is a Blue Jay, and Recording 4 is too faint to be confident about, although I’m getting either Horned Lark or Tree Sparrow vibes. I agree that Recordings 2 and 3 are Red Crossbill.

Thanks! Hadn't associated the first call with a Blue Jay before, but after your post I noticed it again this week. Ran into a couple sounds today that I wasn't sure about:


Wooded forest near a reservoir, noticed finch silhouettes in a tree around the time of the first call (but they could've been goldfinches, which I heard after this).

The first one, if it was over here, my immediate reaction would be [Eurasian] Nuthatch. So check out White-breasted Nuthatch, and Red-breasted too, to see if either of them is your bird.

No idea with the 2nd!
