Listening to the feed just now and heard duck wing whir (as I often do). This time, however, it was followed by an obviously louder, much slower wing whir, then a vocalization betraying the identity of the source. Pretty cool stuff, never gets old.
BTW, this is a first of fall observation of this species for me!
And are any of you dorks good enough to ID the sparrow seep at 0:04?
2013 and beyond
It's pretty simple: the most birds seen or heard from one's yard during 2013 will be the "winner". Want in? O.k....then do it despite that.
2013 promises to be a lot less mean but still a carbon-free birding competition, even if slightly less exciting than a MEGA x EPIC hybrid.
