The morning sun was warm, the breeze a caress. Islay Creek was alive with song - all the usual birds plus Swainson's Thrush, Purple Finch, and Cliff Swallow. I was birding without binoculars. There are several bird APPS that can be helpful with identification. I use IBird Plus which does not require an internet connection; there are songs and call for each bird that one can listen to.
This morning I recorded one minute of bird sounds. How many can you identify?
