Hi Jerry--
 From your website I see you have quite a few foregrounded bird calls
and also some ambient space recordings like the fish market.  I
assume the later was made with your ECMDS70P.  Do you want your
stereo rig for close-ups of birds or to record ambient "space?"

Rich or anyone, how would you compare $400 for another K-6/ME-62
capsule to spending $200 for a pair of 183's? Both omnis can be used
in a parabolic dish or worn binaural style, the 183's are a lot
smaller and will work with your MD recorder.

Curt Olson has some Shure 183 recordings here:

The samples made with his wood block rig are at the bottom of this
page with these titles:

Urban Geese Fly Overhead (:35 sec. - 548KB)

Rural Pheasant Call w/ Feather Fluff (:30 sec. - 464KB)

Dawn Chorus in My Suburban Front Yard (:24 sec. - 368KB)

Wilderness Dawn Woodpeckers, etc. (:37 sec. - 572KB)

Wilderness Duck Low Fly-Over (:16 sec. - 248KB)
