Recorded in Webster, NY just after dark. A Whip-poor-will sounds off continuously, from a nearby tree at the edge of the "Big Field" next to the parking area. The "peeents" of American Woodcock can also be heard from the field where myself and other birders witnessed some courtship display at dusk. Equipment used was a homemade 18" parabolic dish (Edmund Scientific) housing Sound Professionals mini binaural mics, along with a Sony MZ-NH1 HD minidisc recorder.

    Caprimulgus vociferus! Superb recording, clean and strong as only a parabola can yield. And your binaurals made a good job, that's interesting indeed. I wonder how did you set up the capsules onto the (rigid, aluminum?) dish.
