Hi Ryan,
You will probably want to add wind protection. Even a very slight breeze 
blowing against an unprotected capsule will likely create distortion. It can be 
hard to find times with no wind at all, even deep in a forest. "Really windy" 
usually means something different to the nature recordist than to the average 
There are a variety of materials and methods people use to make wind screens. 
Lightweight polar fleece (but not the wind block type) has worked pretty well 
for me.
