Media notes

Bird started atop a non-native evergreen near an intersection. Shortly after you hear the first car, the bird few to a perch on an electrical pole it used yesterday. You can hear me follow the bird. When I tried to move a bit closer (you hear my steps) the bird moved a few feet down the wire. For the final segment, I lowered the recording level. A second NOMO is heard in the background often making very similar songs. It started raining before I could make an announement. Overcast, light rain, slight breeze.
