Media notes

Flight call of at least two birds. Poor-quality audio, with a lot of distortion but the birds are audible once at the beginning and once at the end of the recording. Recording has been clipped to those two calls (I didn't cut out any other calls - only wind noise), and I have partially muted the wind noise between the calls, but didn't modify the audio in any other way. Recorded about 90 minutes before sunrise (a bit before 5am) at an elevation of about 5000 feet.

Observation details

Heard at least two Newell's Shearwaters circling over me as I walked along the ridge, not far past the Pu'u o Kila lookout. The audio of the recording is poor (on an iPhone on a windy ridge), but I heard them well and for an extended period (5-10 minutes). I never saw them, but from sound they weren't far away (and were occasionally at about eye level just off the ridge)
