Sound Recording: April 17 Morning Song

Recorded on April 17, 2022 Recorded in Peabody Street, Duluth, MN

An hour and forty minutes of mostly redpolls with some Fox Sparrows and a smattering of other songs. I set my Zoom H6 with the XY-stereo microphone on the ground near the house, pointed at the spruce tree to the west, starting after I brought in the recorder from my office recording close redpolls with the shotgun microphone. Throughout this recording, you can hear all the redpolls take off en masse from very close range, sounding almost like a sliding door, whenever something scared them. I edited out passing cars and a couple of loud dogs.
