    Identify Bird Song

    I was out in the woods walking to a pond this morning and heard an amazing bird song. I could not see the bird as it was way up high in a deep mixed conifer forest. I shot a quick video, just to capture the song. Can anyone identify this? The location was southern New Hampshire.

    Go to the link https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6cf99...3A2B7D24%21362 and download the file P1090985 to hear the song. Sorry, I don't know how to strip a .wav file out of the .mov file, which would bring the files size down a bunch.

    Follow up: I posted the clip to YouTube and sent an email message with the link to an audobon member. Verdict: winter wren.

    Homer, I would have a listen but it appears I have to sign up to do so.

    Does it? The link should go to a public page on Skydrive. Anyone know how to extract a .wav file from the .mov? If I could do that the audio portion would be much smaller. I could post it easier somewhere else.

    I have a skyDrive account and was signed in.
    I got the following message:

    I have Sony Vegas installed on my computer and can strip the audio out of a video clip.

    OK. Let's try this link: http://sdrv.ms/KIAgm7. I don't think I have public files on Skydrive mastered yet

    If this were really important, I'd take up your offer to strip the audio, Kris. But, I think it's enough just to listen to the file from Skydrive. Any comments on that software? Using the camera to make a quick recording sucks up a lot of memory, but is handy at times if you need a quick audio recording.

    Sounds like an American Gold Finch, Homer. You can catch them on small trees but normally check the tops of the the trees.

    I don't know. We have goldfinches here - they don't sound like that. Audubon describes their call as per-chick-o-ree or potato-chip. This is a long, complex call with an unusually high note.
