Awesome. Ranging much higher than the Mount Mitchell bird, perhaps due to the lack of taller trees on that site. Steve ComptonGreenville, SCSent from my Verizon LG Smartphone------ Original message------From: Derek AldrichDate: Wed, May 13, 2020 8:28 PMTo: Dwayne Martin;Cc: Harry LeGrand;carolinabirds listserve;Subject:Re: Kirtland's Warbler -- singing! -- today in Watauga Co., NCre the audio on ebird: They just imported a huge chunk of audio this past weekend so the system is playing catch up currently. Very nice sighting though. Derek AldrichSC Ebird Hotspot AdminOn Wed, May 13, 2020 at 6:05 PM Dwayne Martin <carolinabirds...> wrote:This should work.**LJ__;KioqKioqKioqKioqKg!!OToaGQ!_gRQXNHyvBOf7bAPEsTG58ND_VrjImYWuw-SuCo-irnD7EJ8PD0PbDg7tnWowbwchts$ .
