I observed a gorgeous adult-plumaged, Red-necked Grebe on the Hudson River today at about 3:15 pm. It was awesome to see full breeding plumage...and wait for it....a full on vocalization that included some crazy weird grunting and hissing sounds! I ran back to my car to get my recorder, but missed my chance. I waited for half an hour in record mode, but no dice. Location was on River Road, approx. 100 meters north of the little parking area next to the little "Otter" pond on the opposite side of the road.
And thus my newest endeavor...focusing on bird vocalization recordings to compliment my happy years of bird photography! I'm loving my newest recorder, the Tascam DR-44WL...it is the only recorder in it's class with it's own built-in WIFI so that you can operate it with your cell phone from 100 feet away. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in bird sound recording! Just sharing the love of birds!
