Winter Rooks

I've been snowed in for nine days and have been spending my time 
recording day and night with my Sennheisers in the wood and on a new 
bird table. They have survived snow and still gave good sound with six 
inches of snow on the yeti windgags. I've got cine plus sound of a 
Pied Woodpecker pecking at the nut dispenser after some practicing by 
it and by me.

I've now got days of recordings to select from, but here's some rooks 
this evening. The rookery is about a mile across the valley but they 
come visiting my woods from time to time. Behind the rook noise there 
is a crow trying to get a word in edgewise which it does near the end. 
I think the odd call after that could be a local Raven making one of 
its funny noises. It's a little over-compressed at 64kb/s.
