During this recording the birds are primarily inside the school chimney with single individuals exiting at times, their wing sounds audible as they leave the chimney. The number of birds in this data record is estimated at 600+ on the basis of the previous night's count while the flock was spiraling prior to descending into the chimney.

An X-Y pair of Sennheiser MKH 106T omnidirectional microphones on a stereo bar were hoisted up to the very edge of the chimney. Two Sennheiser BP2 power modules set in "Cut" (low frequency attenuation) mode were used to power the microphones.
