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:

Mourning Dove
American Robin
Red-winged Blackbird
Wild Turkey and likely a very good Turkey hunter doing calls
Common Yellowthroat Warbler
Swamp Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
Song Sparrow
Ring-necked Pheasant
American Crow
Green Frog
Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Gray Catbird
Blue Jay
Chipping Sparrow singing with Swamp Sparrows just to confuse sound 
recordist people.
Brown-headed Cowbird
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.
