  • Red-crossbills, mountian chickadees, … at Loon Lake

    Recorded a little after 0700 on Sept. 24, 2008 at Loon Lake in the Sierra Nevada.  The sun had just touched the tops of the pines and flocks of 10-15 red crossbills were very active flying back and forth high in the treetops.  On this recording the call of the crossbills is the strong “cheep cheep” one hears at the beginning.  Towards the end the wind comes up and can be heard in the tree tops.

    Cast of characters:

    red crossbills, mountain chickadees, Stellar’s jay, pine siskins, red-breasted nuthatches and mallards on the lake

    Equipment: Sound Devices 722 with Telinga dish and twin science microphone

    This file is from the same location, a little bit later, and has more of a “songlike” quality.
