Here are some of my sightings from southern Oregon, two different call types in the same region, type 1 and 2 were there. The assumption is that type 1 should be the one we get here most commonly. The recordings that Ginger made are of type 1, so western vs Sierra birds.

How, pray-tell, can you tell what region an Evening Grosbeak is from by their calls?!? I would love to learn that trick!
We used to have them by the score back in the day in Maine but their populations have dropped dramatically to where you hardly see them at all anymore :(

We did get some okay (not great) audio recordings this morning. Urban bird call recording is a challenge, to find a few segments of calls that aren't drowned out by human conversations, car noise, plane noise, barking dogs, construction crashes…but a few seconds is better than nothing?
If anyone can get some recordings (you can do it on your iphone – voice memo) and then upload it to an eBird list, they may be identifiable to call type and we can get a better idea of what region they came from.
