One more follow-up about the presentation by Andrew Farnsworth at the
Cornell Lab on Monday. We did record the talk, but Andrew presented some
unpublished data in the talk and has asked us not to post to our archive
until he's had time to publish. So the talk will not be in our archive for
a while - sorry about that.

*Monday March 6, 2017, 7:30pm–9:00pm *

*Monday Night Seminar*

*Title: Perspectives on Nocturnal Bird Migration: What we've learned from
BirdCast*

*Speaker: Dr. Andrew Farnsworth, Research Associate, Information Science,
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology*

*Description: *Bird migration is a spectacular global phenomenon that has
long captured the attention of human observers. But it wasn’t until the
turn of the 20th century that ornithologists realized the magnitude of
migration that occurred at night. Now in the early 21st century, several
technologies have advanced sufficiently far to allow us to achieve new
understandings of the magnitude and characteristics of nocturnal bird
migration across a broad range of scales in new and different ways. The
BirdCast project is a collaborative effort between ornithologists and
computer scientists to further our understanding of the biology of bird
migration by using state of the art machine learning and computer science
techniques in combination with data collected with remote sensing methods,
like radar and acoustic monitoring, to achieve these understandings. Dr.
Andrew Farnsworth will speak about some of the novel insights gleaned and
results produced so far from this fascinating project.

Subject: Re: Big Double-up
From: Bill Evans <wrevans AT clarityconnect.com>
Date: Sat, 28 Jan 2017 20:11:17 -0500
Follow-up manuscript:
Evans, W. R., M. Grosselet, and G. Ruiz Michael. An unidentified nocturnal 
flight call from southern Mexico. Huitzal 18(1):131-140. 
http://huitzil.net/blog/?p=1826 




From: Bill Evans 
Sent: Friday, September 23, 2016 11:40 AM

Subject: [nfc-l] Big Double-up

Dear NFCers,
My colleague Manuel Grosselet and I recorded an unidentified night flight call 
in southern Mexico (near Minatitlan) in fall 2012. We call it “the big 
double-up” for obvious reasons as one can see in the attached spectrograms. 
We recorded 32 of the calls near Minatitlan from Oct 16-Dec 3, 2012. What 
distinguishes it from other “double-ups” one commonly encounters in eastern 
US is the combination of the call’s broad frequency expanse (~5 kHz on 
average), the relatively large maximum frequency gap between its component 
tones (~ 2 kHz on average), and its much longer overall duration, ~85 mS on 
average, which is roughly twice as long as the Tennessee, Orange-crowned, 
Nashville , and Black-throated Green double-up complex. 

Based on my not seeing this call type in 25+ years of spectrographic night 
flight call study across eastern US, I conclude that it is a species that does 
not likely migrate across eastern US. To support this contention, I’m 
soliciting feedback from the untamed multitude of others monitoring nfcs these 
days as to whether you have encountered this big double-up call type in the 
eastern US, or anywhere in North America. A short audio clip of the call is 
also attached. Many thanks, Bill Evans

From: "Liz D. Rowland" <edr6 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:47:02 +0000
The Bioacoustics Research Program will be running a 5-day Sound Analysis 
Workshop 
featuring Raven Pro 
from Monday April 3rd to Friday April 7th, 2017 at the Cornell Lab of 
Ornithology in Ithaca, New York, USA. The workshop is intended primarily for 
biologists interested in analysis, visualization, and measurement of animal 
sounds. The workshop covers basic principles of spectrographic analysis and 
measurement of animal sounds, as well as specific tools and techniques in Raven 
Pro. 


The maximum class size is 12, and there are currently 6 places available. The 
standard fee is $1,400, but there is a discounted rate of $1,050 for registered 
students (Bachelors, Masters or Ph.D.). The fee covers tuition, lunches, and a 
complimentary 1-yr license for 
Raven. More details 
can be found on the BRP 
homepage 
(Education & Outreach tab). 

Please contact Liz Rowland, edr6 AT cornell.edu if you're 
interested or have questions.

Hi Debbie,

Very interesting work. Low elevation in your area would be very high in a 
coastal area. It makes me wonder how the preferred flight altitude of a migrant 
is related to sea-level and local geography.

Although anyone would be aghast if I were to claim a level of expertise near 
that of Ken or Bill, I’d include EAME in the clade exhibiting flatulence. In 
any event, it is a shame that those Dickcissels get crop-dusted on their 
wintering grounds. 

 
Removing myself from the room,

1. My 9-year-old son, who read Ken's note somewhat out of context, thinks
Ken's note is fantastic.

2. This is a week late, but check out this sparrow flight over Boulder
County, Colorado, USA, back on Sunday, Oct. 30:

Hello all,

Could someone with a bit more experience please confirm whether or not this is 
a Dickcissel? It's getting kind of late for them, and the call sounds a bit 
off. It was picked up by the Oldbird DICK detector at 0218, 11-2-16 over Dover,

Yes, it’s an Upland Sandpiper. Here’s one I recorded last year:

Night of 10/5/16 -- Yard, Westport CT

 

 

I was looking back at some calls I couldn't identify from the past month, and 
discovered what I believe could be an upland sandpiper. I lengthened the call a 
bit to make it easier to listen to. Thoughts?

Yes we had over 100 mm of rain and over 100 km/hr wind. A strong wind can blow 
water through small holes too. I found that tipping a flower pot mic slightly 
helps to let the water run off.

John,

 

I built my mic using the plans on Bill Evans' site. I waterproofed it by 
putting plastic wrap over the top, however there is an infinitesimal hole where 
the audio cable comes through, and apparently water got in through that. I had 
never had problems before, so I figured it would be fine. I guess the rain was 
just too heavy that day though.

Hello all,

 

Sorry I've fallen a bit behind in posting these, I've been extremely busy and 
just haven't had time to go through my calls. High school is such a blast. 
Anyway, getting down to the interesting stuff... 


During this period my supposedly waterproof homemade mic managed to get soaking 
wet in a huge rainstorm, so I was unable to record on 3 nights while I waited 
for new parts to arrive. This week I had 265 calls, of which 189 were 
identifiable.The most numerous call was Swainson's Thrush. Below are totals for 
each night, as well as species totals (estimated minimum individuals in 
parentheses) 


 

10/1 48 (Moderate E/SE winds)

 

10/2 No data

 

10/3 No data

 

10/4 No data

 

10/5 143 (Moderate NE winds)

 

10/6 65

 

10/7 9

 

 

Great Blue Heron 7(1)

Green Heron 2(1)

Killdeer 32(11)

Swainson’s Thrush 62(21)

Veery 18(6)

Gray-cheeked Thrush 1(1)

Thrush Sp. 2

Blackpoll Warbler 5(2)

Cape May Warbler 2(1)

Common Yellowthroat 1(1)

Magnolia Warbler 3(1)

Northern Parula 5(2)

Yellow-rumped Warbler 1(1)

Pine Warbler 2(1)

Palm Warbler 2(1)

Warbler Sp. 55

Savannah Sparrow 45(15)

White-throated Sparrow 1(1)

Passerine Sp. 18

Bird Sp. 1

 

I still have over 400 calls to classify from the past two weeks, but I should 
have them out soon. Also, I'm working on a full report from this season, 
complete with charts showing wind data, calls per hour, etc. I hope to have 
that out by mid-November.

I still have over 400 calls to classify from the past two weeks, but I should 
have them out soon. Also, I'm working on a full report from this season, 
complete with charts showing wind data, calls per hour, etc. I hope to have 
that out by mid-November.

Date: Sun, 23 Oct 2016 23:39:48 -0400
Hello all,

Sorry I've fallen a bit behind in posting these, I've been extremely busy
and just haven't had time to go through my calls. High school is such a
blast. Anyway, getting down to the interesting stuff...
During this period my supposedly waterproof homemade mic managed to get
soaking wet in a huge rainstorm, so I was unable to record on 3 nights
while I waited for new parts to arrive. This week I had 265 calls, of which
189 were identifiable.The most numerous call was Swainson's Thrush. Below
are totals for each night, as well as species totals (estimated minimum
individuals in parentheses)

10/1 48 (Moderate E/SE winds)


10/2 No data


10/3 No data


10/4 No data


10/5 143 (Moderate NE winds)


10/6 65


10/7 9

Subject: Odd NFC - Hudson River, Hudson county NJ
From: Dominic Garcia-Hall <dominic.hall AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 16 Oct 2016 11:14:32 -0400
Hi all,
Was recording over the Hudson river last night, with the mic angled hoping
to pick up any waterfowl migrating mid-river, and picked up this.

https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S32046015

Am pretty new to NFC recording so still learning. I thought this was
interesting. It sounded like a shorebird or something when i first heard
it, but i really have no idea. I'd love to know if anyone can ID it.

Of course I'm fully prepared for it not to be a bird - the last thing that
caught me out when I tried recording over the river was some metal bit of
the jetty creeking right at 5khz, I suppose when a boat wake disturbed it
in the night ....;)

Cheers

Subject: Weekly report
From: John Kearney <john.kearney AT ns.sympatico.ca>
Date: Sun, 9 Oct 2016 13:32:36 -0300
Hi All,

My weekly report on nocturnal migration in Nova Scotia is available for the
1st week of October at:
http://www.johnfkearney.com/Carleton_YarmouthCounty_2016.html.

 

Nocturnal migration here was only 1/5 of what it was during the previous
period. Some of the later migrants like Orange-crowned Warbler, Black-capped
Chickadee, and Dark-eyed Junco began to appear this week.

The most common birds were Yellow-rumped Warblers and White-throated
Sparrows.

Subject: Re: Probable BICKNELL'S
From: "Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes" <cth4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Thu, 6 Oct 2016 15:32:02 +0000
Preston,

While I’m certainly no expert on Bicknell’s calls, and likewise defer to 
others, I’ve definitely been paying attention to possible calls and I’ve 
been trying to tease apart possible characteristics more consistent with 
Bicknell’s versus Gray-cheeked. 


I took a little time last night to manipulate your recordings to make them more 
audible – I had to increase amplitude by at least 15-20 times and added 
duplicate sound to the front end of the calls to give my brain time to adjust 
and to hear the call of interest. 


The first call, which peaked nicely around 5.3 kHz, I personally would have no 
hesitation in labeling as a Bicknell’s Thrush. Likewise, the second call, 
which peaks right around 5.1 kHz, I’d say has solid potential as a 
Bicknell’s Thrush. 


Echoing Matt’s comment, the very steep and sharp onset of the call is a 
characteristic I’m suspicious may be more reliably unique to Bicknell’s 
Thrushes. Similar to how Gray-cheeked Thrush calls can peak all over the place 
between 3 kHz and darned close to 5 kHz, there may be some acceptable 
Bicknell’s that are actually lower-frequency callers, below 5 kHz, and 
possibly identifiable simply by the structure of the call, rather than purely 
by the peak frequency – although high frequency is a dead ringer (if above 5 
kHz) for Bicknell’s. 


Hope this helps, if at least somewhat…thoughts?

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

While looking over recordings from this night, I came across two calls that 
appeared to me significantly higher and purer-toned than standard gray-cheeked 
calls. Both peak at around 5 kHz. The call at 2.55.46 is the highest of the 
two, and thus more likely Bicknell's. Am I correct in calling them BITH? Thank 
you for any assistance.

Subject: Bicknell's calls...
From: Matt Orsie <wvbirder AT comcast.net>
Date: Thu, 6 Oct 2016 08:32:29 -0400
Hi Preston,
    I haven't recorded anything in a long time but 10-12 years ago I was 
doing quite a bit in the eastern panhandle of WV. One evening I thought 
I recorded a Bicknell's with call top out at or near 5KHz but it turned 
out to be an aberrant Gray-cheeked. Look at the "rise time" of the call 
as compared to Gray-cheeked. It should be markedly sharper with less 
time to the top frequency. Compare that to Gray-cheeked calls you have a 
spectrogram of. I'm not saying you didn't record one, just check this 
characteristic also.

Subject: Fwd: [de-birds] Maurice Barnhill
From: Jerald <jrebelboy AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 4 Oct 2016 12:53:52 -0400
Hello all,

I am very sad to report that longtime subscriber of the listserv, Dr.
Maurice Barnhill passed away last night. He was an active member of the
birding community (especially in my home state of Delaware), and will be
sorely missed by all. Below is a forwarded message from the DE-birds
listserv regarding Dr. Barnhill.

Subject: [de-birds] Maurice Barnhill
To: de-birds AT princeton.edu


Hi everybody,
It's with great sadness to announce that Maurice Barnhill passed away last
night. He was in hospice at Christiana Hospital for a week, quietly went in
his sleep.

Maurice was awarded the Delmarva Ornithological Society's (DOS) "Outstanding
Achievement in Ornithology" last year after a long and distinguished career.
He was a co-author of "Bird of Delaware" (2000), served as Vice-president of
DOS, Records committee, and council, found the first record of White-faced
Storm-Petrel in North America about 15 miles east of Indian River Inlet, and
wrote the report for Delaware first Lark Sparrow. Many birders are using
Maurice's "Where to Find Birds in Delaware" today from the DOS web site.

Maury was an early proponent of the American Birding Association. He wrote a
series of articles on bird descriptions. He also had the highest Big Year
for ABA once, only because his friend, Harold Morrin didn't submit his list.
Maurice believed in mentoring the next generation, including current ABA
president-Jeff Gordon, along with Andy Mack, ornithologist from Papua New
Guinea, and Ted Parker, possibly the greatest field ornithologist of all
time.

Many birders don't know that Maurice was a high energy physicist at the
University of Delaware. After graduating from University of North Carolina,
he earned a Ph.D. from Stanford. There were 3 Nobel laureates on his
doctoral dissertation board.  His college class on Physical Science was a
pre-requisite for many of the science programs, but Maury was not happy with
the curriculum so he wrote his own textbook!

There will be a memorial service at the U of D to be announced. Maury is
survived by his brother Jim, his nieces, and many close friends in the
birding community. I will be glad to pass along any messages to the family.

Good birding,
Andy

There is a lot happening with night flight calls these days. Another action

Hey, all. Just thought I'd mention that two dozen of us on a Carolina Bird

Oct. 2. We listened from the outskirts of the parking lot of the Quality
Inn in Beaufort.

Here's the eBird checklist, compiled by Mike McCloy:

Subject: NFCs over Dover, DE 10/2
From: Jerald <jrebelboy AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 2 Oct 2016 23:32:15 -0400
Hello all,

I've been having technical issues with my mic, so I decided to go to one of
my favorite local patches, and just listen without the mic. In the 30
minutes that I was out, I had 101 calls, far more than I have ever picked
up in the same amount of time with the microphone. Below are the species
totals.

Greater Yellowlegs 1
Passerine Sp. 6
Warbler Sp. 3
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 55
Bobolink 1
Veery 4
Savannah Sparrow 12
Gray-cheeked Thrush 3
Swainson's Thrush 20
Black-crowned Night Heron 1

Please note that all of the RBGR calls are presumed. I'm not terribly
confident in the ID of their NFC, and honestly I called most of them
grosbeaks simply because they didn't match any of the thrushes. I attached
one of the presumed RBGR calls below; it sounds rather like a pure-toned
Gray-cheeked Thrush.

One more useful thing with the list is if location of the lister is added. I 
know sometime people traveling also post. In general it would be nice if some 
one wants to coordinate with local members.

Hi All,

I have written up a short report using weather radar and acoustic monitoring
to document a fallout of small passerines in southwest Nova Scotia on the
morning of 23 September 2016.

Here is the link: http://www.johnfkearney.com/Fallout_2016.html. 

Comments welcome.

Good morning!

As previously mentioned, below is the current list of subscribers (sans email 
addresses) to the NFC-L eList (346 total). Hopefully, this will give everyone 
clarity in knowing who they are speaking to when posting or contributing. 


That being said, not all subscribed email addresses are set to actively receive 
emails; further, there are at least three subscribed mail archive addresses 
which may broaden the reader base to a potentially larger, more anonymous 
audience of persons interested in night flight calls. 


Thanks again to all readers and contributors and good night listening!

Sincerely,

Subject: Manitoba night migrants
From: Jeff Wells <jeffwells AT borealbirds.org>
Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2016 03:45:53 +0000
Just listened for a few minutes from the balcony of my hotel room in Gimli, 
Manitoba at about 10:15 PM local time. Above the sound of someone playing 
Rolling Stones music somewhere on the street I heard a number of sparrows (some 
White-throated), some Yellow-rumped Warblers, a Palm Warbler, and a flock of 
Canada Geese. Probably lots more but I am too tired to keep listening.....

Subject: RE: Bicknell's Thrush - More Classic Example
From: John Kearney <john.kearney AT ns.sympatico.ca>
Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:40:45 -0300
Hi Chris,

I was hoping someone else would give you some feedback on your nice series of 
thrush calls. Not only have I been talking too much lately but this topic can 
be a special quagmire. 


I want to note that I have one monitoring station that is the first landfall 
directly southwest of the island of Newfoundland. Therefore, the flight calls 
of Gray-cheeked Thrush that I record there are very likely Catharus minimus 
minimus. They are consistently less humped and more descending than Catharus 
minimus aliciae. Their maximum frequency is 4 KHz or a little greater. I had 
another monitoring station that is the first landfall southwest of Cape Breton 
Island where Bicknell’s Thrush breed. These thrush calls have a maximum 
frequency over 5 kHz. I have attached a photo illustrating these three types of 
calls, including one from Louisiana provided by Bill Evans. Perhaps some of 
your calls are C.m.minimus. Given this race is believed to winter in South 
America, including Columbia, one cannot rule out the possibility of them flying 
over Etna, NY. 


It would be interesting to get a series of night flight calls from these two 
species in areas close to their breeding range. 


Thanks,

John Kearney

Carleton, NS

Albeit soft and slightly distant, this bird was recorded over Etna, NY on 23 
September 2016 at 23:25. 


 

I would consider this to be a classic example because its peak frequency is 
above the 5kHz “safety” demarkation line. 


 

This bird peaks around 5.25 kHz and has an overall duration of about 250 
milliseconds. Similar to the “possible Bicknell’s Thrush” examples posted 
yesterday, the sharp onset followed by a variably modulated and notably longer 
trailing descent is the call structure which caught my eye while browsing 
through my data last night. 


 

Attached are both the recorded call (with some lower cricket and noise bands 
gently filtered out) and a screen grab of the call for visual representation. 


 

Good night listening!

 

Sincerely,

Chris T-H

Subject: Re: Interesting Savannah Sparrow Call
From: Andrew Horn <aghorn AT dal.ca>

Hi all,

In the recent tagging study, the first juvenile Ipswich was detected on the 
mainland on 17 September (Crysler et al. 2016, Movement Ecology DOI 
10.1186/s40462-016-0067-8), and you’d expect a lower frequency call from this 
bigger subspecies (its song is slightly lower, too), so this all makes sense. 


Cheers,
Andy Horn

Hi All,
As an update to my response to Preston’s post yesterday, Jerald sent me 
offline a copy of a blog entry by Paul Driver on Ipswich Sparrow flight calls 
(http://pjdeye.blogspot.ca/2009/12/ipswich-sparrow-flight-calls.html). 
Recordings of the flight calls of Ipswich Sparrows in NJ show that their 
frequency can be much lower than previously thought and that the feature most 
distinguishing them from the nominate race of Savannah Sparrow is the degree of 
modulation in the call. This sheds a new light on Preston’s call in Westport. 

It is interesting to note that I posted what I thought might be an Ipswich 
Sparrow flight call to this forum on 18 September 2013. Attached is a photo of 
the spectrogram, and the wav file can be found in the archives for that date. 
The call was recorded at Canso, NS. The point on the mainland of North America 
closest to Sable Island. Based on Paul Driver’s blog post, this call would 
also be a good candidate for Ipswich Sparrow.

Hi Preston,
You indeed have an interesting call. My feeling is that it is a highly 
modulated Savannah Sparrow rather than “Ipswich” Savannah Sparrow. I 
believe an Ipswich Sparrow should be of a higher frequency overall. That being 
said, I think we need some more examples of Ipswich flight calls and come up 
with a range of measurements for analyzing spectrograms. 

It is also unlikely, not impossible, but unlikely that you would have an 
Ipswich Sparrow in Connecticut this early. Juvenile Ipswich Sparrows start 
leaving Sable Island in late September and will usually spend time on the coast 
of Nova Scotia and Maine before heading further south. Adults don’t leave 
until October.

While looking through the results of last night's extremely productive 
recording, I stumbled upon a very interesting savannah sparrow call which is 
superficially similar to an Ipswich call, mainly because it is highly 
modulated. As Ipswich savannah sparrows are very rare in Connecticut, I was 
wondering if anyone could confirm or refute this tentative ID. Attached is a 
screenshot of the spectrogram, and (a very brief) clip of the call.

Hi Jerald,

This is a tough one. I agree it is too high for Palm Warbler. It could be a 
high Yellow-rumped Warbler. It might also be an odd Ovenbird. I would lean 
toward Ovenbird but should probably go with warbler species?

Hello,

 

Could someone please tell me what this call is? The spectrogram reminds me of 
Palm Warbler, but it's a bit high for that I think. 


 

Thanks,

Subject: Bicknell's Thrush - More Classic Example
From: "Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes" <cth4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:15:17 +0000
Albeit soft and slightly distant, this bird was recorded over Etna, NY on 23 
September 2016 at 23:25. 


I would consider this to be a classic example because its peak frequency is 
above the 5kHz “safety” demarkation line. 


This bird peaks around 5.25 kHz and has an overall duration of about 250 
milliseconds. Similar to the “possible Bicknell’s Thrush” examples posted 
yesterday, the sharp onset followed by a variably modulated and notably longer 
trailing descent is the call structure which caught my eye while browsing 
through my data last night. 


Attached are both the recorded call (with some lower cricket and noise bands 
gently filtered out) and a screen grab of the call for visual representation. 


Good night listening!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Correction:  **Westward** shift of birds departing the Adirondacks!

Subject: Re: Huge flight over NY, VT
From: Bill Evans <wrevans AT clarityconnect.com>
Date: Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:24:06 -0400
Same large flight down the Hudson River Valley last night with 2930 warbler and 
sparrow calls recorded with a 21c mic between 9pm-5am at a station in Chatham, 
NY (~20 miles southeast of Albany). 


Hourly record as follows:

9-10        88
10-11    127
11-12    151
12-1      211
1-2        402
2-3        726
3-4        765
4-5        460

Anyone interested in tackling the IDs can can download the calls at: 
http://oldbird.org/Data/2016/CLC/23-24Sep16CLC.zip (27 mb) 


Also, for anyone interested in getting in on the action this season I have six 
newly refurbished 21c mics for sale at ~half price.

There is s huge flight of thrushes over White Lake NY and Bennington VT tonight 
- I counted 300 plus thrushes in 30 minutes of nearly continuous layered 
calling. Mostly Swainsons but quite a few Gray-cheeked. All of which got 
flagged. Also 3 Am Bitterns

Hi Jerald,

I think some of the quality of the calls is lost when I convert your mp3s to 
wav files. I had a bit of trouble reading the spectrograms. There were a number 
of birds in those recordings. I could discern Swainson’s Thrush, Hermit 
Thrush, one Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and perhaps one or two Veery.

I have had a few interesting calls this week as well. They sound rather 
thrush-like, but don't match any of the thrushes. I'm guessing they're 
Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but I would appreciate confirmation.

Hi Preston,

Here’s my take on them.

2.54.06- Palm Warbler

2.54.07-Ovenbird

3.27.37-Indistinct call-Unknown

3.28.58-Also indistinct, looks like a “Double-up Warbler”- maybe 
Black-throated Green Warbler

Subject: Big Double-up
From: Bill Evans <wrevans AT clarityconnect.com>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:40:45 -0400
Dear NFCers,
My colleague Manuel Grosselet and I recorded an unidentified night flight call 
in southern Mexico (near Minatitlan) in fall 2012. We call it “the big 
double-up” for obvious reasons as one can see in the attached spectrograms. 
We recorded 32 of the calls near Minatitlan from Oct 16-Dec 3, 2012. What 
distinguishes it from other “double-ups” one commonly encounters in eastern 
US is the combination of the call’s broad frequency expanse (~5 kHz on 
average), the relatively large maximum frequency gap between its component 
tones (~ 2 kHz on average), and its much longer overall duration, ~85 mS on 
average, which is roughly twice as long as the Tennessee, Orange-crowned, 
Nashville , and Black-throated Green double-up complex. 

Based on my not seeing this call type in 25+ years of spectrographic night 
flight call study across eastern US, I conclude that it is a species that does 
not likely migrate across eastern US. To support this contention, I’m 
soliciting feedback from the untamed multitude of others monitoring nfcs these 
days as to whether you have encountered this big double-up call type in the 
eastern US, or anywhere in North America. A short audio clip of the call is 
also attached. Many thanks, Bill Evans

Subject: Linking sister birding clubs to protect neotropical migrants
From: Jody W Enck <jwe4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 15:00:11 +0000
HI All,

With such an interest in listening to migrating birds at night, I thought 
you’d all be interested in this effort. 



 The Cayuga Bird Club in Ithaca, NY has started an effort to establish a 
network of sister birding clubs in North and Central America linking the 
migratory pathways of neotropical songbirds. Many of the colorful and familiar 
"Birds of Summer" that we enjoy so much in North America during the breeding 
season (e.g., think Wood Thrush and Golden-winged Warbler) are experiencing big 
decreases in their populations. Among many factors are loss of habitat on the 
breeding and wintering areas. While those of us in North America are aware of 
the general population declines for many neotropical migrants, Birding clubs in 
Central America are more aware and knowledgeable of the situation on the ground 
in their countries. Some of the benefits of establishing sister birding clubs 
is to share information, pictures, and stories with each other about what the 
habitat threats and situations are like, and what people on the "other end" of 
the migratory pathway can do or need help doing. 




 As president of the Cayuga Bird Club, I have contacted many birding clubs and 
Audubon Society chapters in NY and PA about the idea, and interest here in 
North America is high. I will be traveling to Honduras later this fall to 
participate in the Honduras Birding Tour for Conservation (HBTC). The HBTC is 
an effort to bring awareness to both the plight of birds in Honduras as well as 
the opportunities for tourists to experience the amazing bird life of that 
Central American country. I also plan to meet with as many of the six existing 
birding clubs in Honduras as possible to discuss the sister birding club idea. 
He have made contacts with someone from most of those clubs, which are 
scattered around a country the size of Virginia. Lacking any professional or 
institutional support for this effort, I have started a Go Fund Me campaign 
(www.gofundme.com/2rha68nv) to raise funds to 
support my travel within Honduras to visit these clubs. 




 Please consider making a donation to support this effort (even $5 or $10 
donations can help!). Also, please contact me by email at 
president AT cayugabirdclub.org if you are interested in knowing more about this 
effort or want to help in some other way. 




Thanks so much!

Hi All,

I've posted my summary for this week's recordings on my website:
http://www.johnfkearney.com/Carleton_YarmouthCounty_2016.html.

Migration in southwest Nova Scotia was non-existent to moderate with
unsettled weather in the middle of the week. Common Yellowthroats were the
dominant species among the birds that were moving.

From: "Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes" <cth4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Mon, 19 Sep 2016 20:41:21 +0000
Hello!

It has been several years since I’ve done this, but I thought it would be a 
good time to provide a list of who’s who for the currently subscribed users 
of NFC-L. 


I realize there may be some individuals opposed of being “exposed” in this 
way, and I would like to respect that for those persons who wish not to be 
known. 


My intent is to post a list of names only (no email addresses) to NFC-L, so 
that everyone knows who they are speaking to in this community of people with 
similar hobby or professional interests, and to help lessen the sense of NFC-L 
being a big black box. 


If you are someone who is opposed to having their presence be known, for 
whatever the reason may be, please email me off-list and I’ll be sure not to 
include your name in the list of member names. 


Thanks for understanding and good night listening everyone!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Hi Jerald and all, 

I did have quite a lot of calls this past week. Something like 800+. I had
started recording thrushes, quite a few Swainsons and at least two Grey
cheeked thrush and some veerys etc. Among warblers of note were a few
Wilson's warblers. 

I don't have data in front of me. Sept 16 was the last day of recording till
4.00 am in the morning.

 

I wish I was there -- but currently in Manaus.

Hi Jerald and all,

I did have quite a lot of calls this past week. Something like 800+. I had 
started recording thrushes, quite a few Swainsons and at least two Grey cheeked 
thrush and some veerys etc. Among warblers of note were a few Wilson's 
warblers. 


I don't have data in front of me. Sept 16 was the last day of recording till 
4.00 am in the morning. 



I wish I was there -- but currently in Manaus.


Cheers

Meena

Hi Jerald and all,

I can see why you would think Field Sparrow. It could be the short variant of 
Field Sparrow since it is only 57 milliseconds in duration. The second band 
(which is uncommon in Field Sparrow) is even shorter and beneath the longer 
band. I believe a second (shorter or fainter band) would normally be above. I 
think it is too short for any other descending, double-banded sparrow flight 
call except Savannah Sparrow. Given that it is short and double-banded, I would 
be more inclined toward Savannah Sparrow

Hello,



Could someone please ID this call for me? I'm thinking it's a Field Sparrow but 
I'm not sure. The spectrogram doesn't look right for Savannah. 




Thanks,

Subject: Re: NFCs Week of 9/3 through 9/9
From: "Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes" <cth4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Mon, 12 Sep 2016 11:05:37 +0000
Hey all,

I’m slowly resuming NFC listening after a very hectic last year. I got a 
microphone up last weekend, but I think it experienced some water intrusion 
following rain the other day, as many warbler calls were distorted and 
attenuated – lower frequency calls were slightly cleaner to hear and see on 
the scrolling spectrogram. 


Last night, there was an astonishing movement of warblers, sparrows, thrushes, 
and grosbeaks. Very nice listening live, albeit poor quality. Predominant 
species was Swainson’s Thrush, followed by Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Veery, 
plus a smattering of Wood Thrushes, I don’t recall hearing any Gray-cheeked 
Thrushes yet. Heard a few Savannah Sparrows, American Redstarts, lots of 
Ovenbirds, and just a handful of Black-throated Blue Warblers; earlier in the 
night, a few flyover Green Herons. Several of the blurred zeeps sounded very 
short and almost Bay-breasted Warbler-like to my ears. Several possible 
Chestnut-sided Warblers as well, but again, those higher-frequency calls were 
quite muted due to some potential water damage to the microphone. 


Hope to get the microphone inspected and repaired in time for the next wave.

Raven question: during data acquisition, can we enable custom-set live filters 
to filter out noise in specific frequency bands? Seems the current version only 
allows for application of filters on a batch of pre-existing data. 


Thanks and good night listening!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Etna, NY

that we had significant thrush movement the night of September 8-9, undoubtedly

John -- are your results higher frequency only, or did you actually have no 
thrushes at all?

Hi Jerald and all,
I think I fared slightly better than Jerald. I had a few calls at least each 
day. But no thrushes or thrush-like calls! Here are my totals. 




2-Sep 81
3-Sep 197

6-Sep 150
7-Sep 106
8-Sep 19

A total of 988 calls.



I have not yet dared to classify all the calls but definitely there were lots 
of Ovenbirds, Magnolia, Bay-breasted, Savannah Sparrows, Black-throated green 
types, Chestnut-sideds, a few No. Parulas and a few Black-thorated blues. Very 
rarely American Redstart.

Hello all,

Despite the winds shifting to the south this week, I had more calls than last 
week, with a total of 236. Below are the numbers per night, as well as the 
numbers per species (estimated individuals in parentheses). Veery was once 
again the most common bird. 



9/3 87 calls
9/4 104 calls
9/5 11 calls
9/6 34 calls
9/7 1 call
9/8 0 calls
9/9 0 calls


Green Heron 16 (5)
American Redstart 21 (8)

Black-and-white Warbler 2 (2)

Black-throated Blue warbler 3 (1)

Northern Parula 3 (1)

Northern Waterthrush 3 (2)

Ovenbird 17 (6)

Warbler Sp. 61

Veery 89 (30)

Thrush Sp. 1

Bobolink 11 (8)

Bird Sp. 8

Passerine Sp. 1



I have uploaded several of my clearer unknown warbler calls to ebird, if anyone 
cares to identify them. I believe that one is a Bay-breasted, one is a Parula, 
and I'm not sure on the other two, though the ascending call could be 
Yellow-rumped.

cares to identify them. I believe that one is a Bay-breasted, one is a Parula, 
and I'm not sure on the other two, though the ascending call could be 
Yellow-rumped.

Subject: Re: NFCs Week of 9/3 through 9/9
From: Laura Gooch <lgooch AT alum.mit.edu>

Folks,
I haven't had time to look at my recordings much, so I have no counts to share. 
My home recording station has very prominent insect song, so that I get 
thousands of false hits, making screening time-consuming. However, I do know 
that we had significant thrush movement the night of September 8-9, undoubtedly 
mostly Swainson's. I heard them while outside both evening and morning. 

John -- are your results higher frequency only, or did you actually have no 
thrushes at all?

Hi Jerald and all, 

I think I fared slightly better than Jerald.  I had a few calls at least each 
day. But no thrushes or thrush-like calls! Here are my totals. 


 

2-Sep 81 

3-Sep 197 

4-Sep 213 

5-Sep 153 

6-Sep 150 

7-Sep 106 

8-Sep 19 

9-Sep 5 

10-Sep 48 

11-Sep 16 

A total of 988 calls. 

 

I have not yet dared to classify all the calls but definitely there were lots 
of Ovenbirds, Magnolia, Bay-breasted, Savannah Sparrows, Black-throated green 
types, Chestnut-sideds, a few No. Parulas and a few Black-thorated blues. Very 
rarely American Redstart. 


 

Cheers

Thank you, Jeff. It is indeed a useful summary of the state of the art. 

I recently received some literature on a new version of the Kaleidoscope
bioacoustics software with cluster analysis by Wildlife Acoustics. Has
anyone used this new version for the analysis of night flight calls?

Hi Jeff Wells, Jeff Bouler and John Kearny,

Thank you for sharing your data and publications!

Of course we are scratching the surface while recording. John for example you 
lumped all warblers into one group. But according to small data points I have 
(just started last year in early September and this year in late August) the 
species composition of warblers vary a lot at night. Then it depends on 
geographical locations. Lewes is very different form Ithaca, New York. Plus so 
many other factors are involved. I have been recording only 1/10 of what Bill 
Evans has been recording at Danby station at 1500 ft 
http://www.oldbird.org/Data/2016/Danby/Danby.htm . Not exactly, now that I 
looked at the recent data, 1/10 that was on August 30. Today I recorded 150 
calls while Danby station recorded only 473 calls. So, so much variation is 
there with in a few (5) miles. But it is worth pursuing. I wish we could have a 
transact of several close recorders and see how they do. We should recruit 
other birders to start recording! 



Now that I am excited about it, unfortunately I will be out of town most 
migration peak period [☹] 



Cheers

Hello all,

One of my students, Kyle Horton, collected acoustic data of migrants in Lewes, 
Delaware and compared it to radar and thermal imaging data of traffic rates. We 
found moderate correlations across nights during the later part of the night 
when calling rates peaked at our site. See the attached article for more 
details. 


Best,

Jeff

Be lovely to see that correlated with weather patterns, or across geographic
scales.  Be fun, of course, to correlate with the radar imagery as well.

Another undergraduate at the time from Bates College named Mike Watson did
some work for his honors thesis using data from three of my recording units
run simultaneously here in Maine all within a few miles of each other.

Attached is one figure showing the nightly variation over three October
nights.

Subject: Re: more on nightly flight call timing variation
From: Jeff Buler <jbuler AT udel.edu>
Date: Tue, 6 Sep 2016 15:12:29 -0400
Hello all,

One of my students, Kyle Horton, collected acoustic data of migrants in 
Lewes, Delaware and compared it to radar and thermal imaging data of 
traffic rates. We found moderate correlations across nights during the 
later part of the night when calling rates peaked at our site. See the 
attached article for more details.

Best,

Jeff

Hi John,

That's great information.

I don't hear many nocturnal non-thrush calls compared to you listeners in
the East but the ones I do hear are usually in the first several hours
after dusk up to about 2 am ish.

Meena brought up an interesting point regarding the possibility that call
spikes at different locations could be based on from where and how long the
birds have been flying.  I hadn't considered that.  Of course, altitude of
the listening location would be a key feature to bring into the analysis as
somebody else had stated.

Hi All,

I believe some of the variability can be accounted for by the species or
family composition of the flight calls you are recording. Below is a graph
of the distribution of flight calls by family for last autumn at an inland,
forested site in Nova Scotia. 

Interesting thread!

John

Hi Jeff and all, 

Thanks for your feed back.  It is getting more interesting!  I just looked
at the data of Sep 21 2015 when I recorded over thousand calls.  As Jeff
mentioned it peaked around 2 am. 

As for Swainsons Thrushes, I have been recording very few calls or no calls
at all, when some other people in my locality have been reporting lots of
them. Just as crow flies a mile down stream from me from Schoellkopf's
stadium someone recorded several of them the other night.  So it seems it is
very interesting. 

 

I will look at my data from last year's sometimes soon. 

 

So what makes them to peak at different times on different days?  Does it
denote from where and how long they have been making their journey? 

 

BTW, Jeff I still have your bug book. If send me your mailing address I will
mail it to you. 

 

Cheers

Meena

All,

 

Out here in southwestern Washington State, I have a steady flow of very
vocal Swainson's Thrushes flying over every night.  Like others on this list
serve, I've noted that the number of calls increasing dramatically about an
hour or so before dawn.  I've often wondered if they are calling this
commonly all night and are just more easily heard as they descend or whether
they call more frequently near dawn.

 

Keeping my eyes and ears skyward.

Subject: [nfc-l] Intersting pattern in data recording

 

Hi all, 

I have been recording in Ithaca NY for last few days. I am finding an
interesting pattern in number of calls recorded per hour (between 9.00 pm to
5.30 am). My recordings of the calls peak around 3.00 am in the morning. So
I am not sure why that pattern. Whether that is the time when they are ready
to touch down so they fly low in search of good locations or something else
is happening? I am curious to know how others are finding. If any Ithaca
recorders are out there have you looked at the pattern? Bill Evans who has
been recording form Danby area in Ithaca sent me a pattern for one day and
that day it peaked around 1.00 am and it also at higher elevation of 1500
ft, while I am at at 821 feet. 

 

Here is the actual data.

 

 



 

Any thoughts are welcome!

Hi Preston and all,

I downloaded the calls you sent. The first one is a "double-up" warbler
mostly likely one in the genus Oreothlypis (Nashville, Tennessee, and
Orange-crowned). I would lean toward Tennessee for this one due to the nice
bend in the spectrogram. When I first looked at the second call, I thought
it was a Magnolia Warbler due to the spacing between humps, but on closer
examination its high frequency, number of humps, depth between humps, and
somewhat descending character fit better with Cape May Warbler.

Subject: Re: Interesting pattern in data recording
From: Jerald <jrebelboy AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 6 Sep 2016 14:31:38 -0400
Sorry all, it appears I was mistake in my earlier statement. I made an
excel chart of calls for three nights this week which I have attached
below. As you can see, the peak seems to be around 22:00 on all three
nights. However, I only listen live until 23:00, and use automatic
detectors for the rest of the night, so the data after 11 is most likely
skewed. The winds were from the north on all three nights.
