Hello again, Looduskalender friends.
After a long absence I feel the urge to return (is it Spring?)
Today I had e-mail from xeno-canto, a website that gives us bird-song recordings. Here is the body of the e-mail:
Springtime in the northern hemisphere is the busiest time on xeno-canto.
The signs are that 2016 will be no exception: 260+ recordists have already
uploaded in march.
Soon the bulk of the migrants will arrive and there will be lots to hear
So, get out your recording kit, pick a quiet spot or hour, and try to
record some local sounds you haven't recorded before.
Maybe a fresh arrival or a passing migrant. Or a local dialect or a
complete song bout of a bird in the dawn chorus.
Perhaps you can compare the vocabulary of different individuals, listen for
mating sounds, begging calls, or document mimicry...
Remember that common birds make worthy subjects and that surprises may be
waiting around the corner!http://www.xeno-canto.org/collection/spotlight/81
