Bit of help here?

31 posts in this topic

Ok. So I was outside when I heard a whistling. Of all the whistling things I have read about here this one is a lot different. The other encounters have had a horrible high pitched whistling. The sound I heard was eerie but beautiful. It was almost like a flute. I whistled back. We whistled back a forth for a bit before I could not hear it anymore. After a little bit It happened again. It happened for a while until it just never came back. Got any explanations? I check the site every like half hour so I will most likely respond.

Birds, in general, will keep answering back to me as long as I'll try to imitate them,

whereas some birds, notably Mockingbirds, like to imitate sounds they hear, e.g.

our whistling for livestock at their feeding times.

The reason I mentioned Mockingbirds is because any one of them can have a large and elaborate repertoire.

Perhaps you heard a flutist or a Mockingbird who is regularly within ear shot of a musician's practicing.

You really should start to record at least audio of this kind of stuff. Someone on here would probably be able to identify the culprit.

Even an older mobile phone would likely do the trick.

Try some of the samples of Thrush song on this page and please let us know if you identify your avian serenader (samples at the bottom of the page).  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Wood_Thrush/sounds

Have you seen any of these birds around your home lately? https://www.outdoors.org/articles/amc-outdoors/northeastern-woodland-bird-songs/

I totally would because I hear it like every day. But I have no idea how I would get it on this computer.

It is NOT a Bigfoot, that creature does not exist, it is almost definitely a bird but could be a frog as well.  Record it with your phone or iPad or whatever device you have and post and  mp3 here and we can help search out the source.  If you can narrow down your region like Northeast, southwest etc. it would help but isn't necessary.

Thanks. The suggestion of a mockingbird is quite good. These birds are often listened to by birders to learn what other birds are in the area.

If you get a recording you'd be amazed at how quickly a birder can identify the species. Even a rough imitation made to a birder can get you the species. See if there is a local bird club in the area. Someone might be interested in helping you out.

The tune is what is important. Different species sing different tunes.

Bigfoot has been known to whistle to attract mates. You must be attractive to bigfeet :)

Well, there are a couple problems with that. I heard it in a swampy area with no trees. And it was almost noon when I heard it.
