Eastern Kingbird - Newfoundland
This is one component of birdwatching that makes it so interesting and such a challenge....not every song is recorded and not every bird is exactly the same as the illustrations. This makes this activity bigger than a matching game. It requires experience, a lot of experience to be able to come up with an id of even a common bird.
It is funny because sometimes when I go birding I come up empty-handed and on other days, the bounty just keeps coming.
Speaking of which, I got a hearing contraption that I hope will enhance my ability to hear the higher pitched bird sounds. I wonder when the sun will shine again.
