    Hey Paul,

    Number one, great shots of a Yellow Warbler. I like #2.

    Number two, were did you get your recordings from? Cornell?

    and finally three, Go sparingly on the cell phone calls, it seems that there are some birders out there that get ummm...overzelous both to the right and left of this issue and you never know whom you might run into.:biggrin: We had a flame war on a mailing list that I'm on because someone asked another what CD set of calls he was using. That started a two week "discussion" on the Pros and Cons of calling birds...ugh! I'm in the camp of use them...but sparingly.

    I am going to hate to get a new cell phone because what I would do is set my cell phone near where I wanted the bird to be and then take another cell phone and call it. My wife just got a new one and you can't use recordings that you make as ringtones on her's. I am going to have to look for one with that option..can you imagin going into the cell phone store.."Hey, I need to call some birds, do you have one with..."

    That being said, I still get strange looks when my wife calls my cell phone...look up the maiting call for a Golden Eagle.:biggrin:...


    Have fun.
     
  5. actually I don't use Cornell because they use Real Player and my poor non-smart phone can't deal with Real Audio files - I did however find (looks at his phone) two sites that seem to work ok

    and
    http://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/id/songwav.html

    and so far I've had no one complaining - in fact my photographer friends are envious and now tag along with me to shoot

    next on my list - pileated woodpeckers - everyone else has seen them at the park but me

    Thanks and Pileated are best it seems in the morning hours and they are loud!
     
  7. Yeah I've heard them wailing away on the trees but by the time I stalk them down - they have usually been chased away by people with children or just other noisy walkers in general.

    I'm just amazed that using my phone, and playing a birdsong actually kept them nearby and allowed me to shoot them.
