Can anybody help me identify this bird by its call? I’ll represent it here in text: “tweet twoot (pause) tweet twoot (continues)”
@matt not sure if serious, but try Merlin bird ID .app
@Ted Half serous. Looks like a fun app, but I don’t know what the bird looks like, only its distinctive call
@matt you might be describing a morning dove, although i think of it as a series of ‘hoo hoos’ where the first hoo is higher than the second hoo
@matt ‘mourning’ dove, i just learned. and i think i mixed up my bird sounds; mourning dove was not the bird I was trying to describe.
i guess i’m in the same boat as you. what is that bird??
But yeah it sounds like we're describing the same bird maybe. The first hoo is three chromatic notes higher than the second, they each last a single beat, with (I've counted) 4 to 5 beats of silence between.
@matt I’m hearing one now and it’s more of a tweet than a hoo. I think I was just blonded by the sound of a mourning dove
