I prefer the more distant version with other sounds describing the
environment. The close one gives a good "species specimen" recording.

You have stereo on the Telinga using the double cardioid mic, which is
an interesting technique. Each capsule is focussing either side of the
parabola focus which is an idea I want to try out. I don't know if the
mic was at the prime focus point (level with the parabola curve where
it becomes - or would become - 45 deg) but that is not necessarily the
best point. It is worth more experimentation.

Curiously, I heard a slowed-down recording behind your two examples
and I filtered out everything above 1KHz and speeded them up 16 times.
Not sure if that is the right speed but you can hear another bird,
I've put the speeded up versions temporarily on:
