Lone crow, making this sound. It was also bill scraping on a limb and doing some wing drooping. I was quite close to the bird ~40 feet. Several other crows (all silent but one was quite iridescent and smooth on the back so likely FISCRO) flew away from this individual as I arrived on the scene. Was interested in any info on behavioral significance of this particular sound.

I applied a 500 Hz band filter to remove some of the background hum and I recorded it with an app that used a compressed format with a 16 kHz upper limit.

Continuing. Found by Karl Suttmann on January 14th. Refound yesterday by Mark Burns.

This morning, I saw it and a second Western Kingbird intermittently flying together. Each time, one returned to the barb wired fence, and the other landed on the ground or flew out of sight.

When the Oceana Navy jets roared and took flight, the other birds scattered; but the brazen Kingbird on the fence calmly preened - “like a boss!”

While photoing this immature Kite (with rust colored and vertically streaked breast), I heard a second Kite. Before I left, I drove by once more and met and talked with resident Cary Koronas. He told me about three Kites. Photos of three (2 adults and 1 young) are here: https://ebird.org/atlasva/view/checklist/S47685175
