Some people have asked me about my home nocturnal flight call station so I wrote this series of articles to be a complete overview of my equipment and how I analyze my recordings.
I've been recording NFCs every night at my house in Lycoming County since the beginning of May and have found it really enjoyable. I live in a valley town between an airport and a highway and still get a ridiculous number of calls. Highlights have included: Brant, black-bellied plover, dunlin, short-billed dowitcher, whimbrel, barn owl, and dickcissel.
It is fairly easy to set up an NFC station and it can be very rewarding. Fall migration is a great time to start so I recommend giving it a try if you are interested. I'm happy to answer any questions. Even this time of year I am getting green herons and both species of cuckoos on a regular basis and shorebirds are starting to migrate south.
