Hi David and Kevin--
re: "Kickapoo Crescendo." I sent the post to Rich Peet. He lists 6 I
didn't pick-up and it looks like Kevin picked-up a few Rich missed.
These are Rich's notes:
Wild Turkey and likely a very good Turkey hunter doing calls
Common Yellowthroat Warbler
Chipping Sparrow singing with Swamp Sparrows just to confuse sound
Possible partial call of a Killdeer.
Possible Black-and-white Warbler during fade at the end.
It was our pleasure and an unexpected treat that several people
traveled a great distance like yourself, David. The recordings for
the CD that are coming in are great. Takes a determined group of
recordists to produce quality recordings despite strong wind through
2 of the 3 days. Rob D.
