Media notes

The frequency of this bird's vocalization is so low that I decided to use a low highpass filter limit of 100 dB. Additionally I did not normalize the volume to -3 dB but chose to keep the volume lower to reduce the background noise and leave it more natural sounding. Normally I follow the eBird guidelines but I think this is an exception. I was about 10 feet from the bird. Background birds are RCKI, MOCH. Background noise is primarily wind.

Observation details

On a montane ridge in the Rocky Mtn foothills. The bird was perched in a windswept Douglas Fir tree alternately vocalizing and pecking at buds on the branches.
