    You're right!
    This recording was made on the 16th of August 2009.

    Wow, quick response.
    I'm a Japanese.
    The scientific name of this kind of cicada is "Meimuna opalifera".
    But usually we call them "Tsukutsukuboshi", because they sing "tsukutsuku-boshi, tsukutsuku-boshi, tsukutsuku...".
    They appear only in late summer, so I guess you recorded this sound in August or September.
    Thank you for your great recording.
    Forgive my rough broken English.

    No, it's not a bird.
    It's a Tsukutsukuboshi cicada.
