Track 1: Yet another recording from Essex, this from early March recorded with a Wildlife Acoustics SM4 recorder. American Woodcock peenting and displaying which is a favorite sound of mine heralding springs arrival here in eastern Massachusetts.

Track 2: Another recording from Essex, this one recorded on the morning of March 06, 2024. A pair of Cooper’s Hawks saying good morning with the Great Horned Owls calling in the background while a Raven flies over calling.

Track 3, 4, 5: 3 recordings from February 2024 of a pair of Great Horned Owls establishing their nesting territory. The pair had Coyotes as singing partners in the 1st recording  and morning bird song in the next two as they ended their day while the birds started theirs.

An hour’s worth of Hummingbirds coming and going at the feeders here in Essex. More than a hundred clips recorded during May & June 2022.

Red-shouldered Hawks nested across the street from the house this summer and have perched near the house calling occasionally. This was recorded on September 3, 2022 with 3 Red-shouldered Hawks (at least one is a hatch year) calling in and near the yard. Cooper’s Hawk, Carolina Wren, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds and many others chime in through the 13 minute recording.

From Photo Shoots In Boston

I’ve made a few trips into Boston with my good friend and fellow Posse Member Gary Smith out of Maine, something we need to do a bit more often.

To Recording Owls In The Backyard

I’ve been recording overnight on the deck in the backyard for over a year and a half now. I used to think Owls were infrequent visitors to the neighborhood but boy was I wrong!

Or Adventures in Arizona

I’ve made several birding trips to Arizona through the years and recommend southern Arizona to anyone looking for more Hummingbirds than you can shake a stick at.

The 1st five recordings below are  from some of my favorite locations in eastern Massachusetts, the last recording was made in Escalante, Utah while hiking into the falls in Lower Calf Creek Canyon.
