Hog Island Audubon Camp sound recordings!

Northern Parula

Last week and this week I'm working as an instructor at Hog Island Audubon Camp in Bremen, Maine. Last week I was helping with the Breaking into Birding class, and this coming week I'll be doing the Joy of Birding class with lots of other instructors. This morning was quiet, with the new instructors not yet here and most of the staff gone, and there was no wind, so I made some sound recordings. There are lots of warblers on both, with Northern Parulas and Black-throated Greens especially noticeable. I've been photographing both species here all week.

I made the first ambient sound recording in a slightly boggy area at about 7:20 am. It lasts about 12 minutes. 

I made the second one near my cabin at about 8:30. This one lasts about 37 minutes.

On the page for each recording, I list all the species I noticed. Let me know if you hear any birds not listed!
