Night Bird ID...

30 posts in this topic

A "peep" call last night, for hours until the storm hit. It was hot and humid, and this bird was flying and peeping for hours...any idea what it is?

Go to 1:28 thru 1:38 of video; you can hear it.

I also have no idea what the "camera noise" is...static? Never had that before, and then it quits....

Sorry, couldn't hear it on the video.   Swallows, night hawks, bats?

Nope. None of those. You guys must all be deaf...the peeps are distinct! Just quiet background, then one peep or squeak....then another, very soft... First one at 1:27, then one at 1:30, 1:32....a "peep" or :whistle", then a few more..turn up yer hearing aids! Or get  a computer with decent sound technology!

Looks like the experts on here can't do it, either.

I tried as best I could to identify that whistle or call. My efforts aren't appreciated.:(

Yers always are, roony! I'll be outside again off and on, and when I hear it again, I'm gonna light it up with my tactical light. THAT'LL show me what it is!!! Besides, we know a group that'll take this one to town, don't we? ;)  :lol:

I did a "Google Boy" imitation and tried to find night calling birds in Minnesota. The only thing I came up with that might be a possibility is a mockingbird. As the name implies, they have a wide range of vocalization.

Did that too, Roony....and whip-poor-wills---you name it. I'm stumped. I still think it's some type of swallow or flycatcher; can't tell ya why I feel that. Gonna talk to a chick I know at the nature center here in a couple days and see what she thinks.I've only heard it when it's warm at night...thought at first it was a frog or peeper, but then it called as it flitted by. I even thought about flying squirrels ans some type of bats...heard all their calls, too...I'm stumped. Warm, humid at night....skeetos were out, and bugs last night...that might bring out a certain bug eating bird......hmmmm....I'm working on it!!
