Several of you have asked about the first bird on day 8. From what I can tell from pictures it looks like an Eastern Kingbird. If you like birds or have children that might needs some extra learning to do 🙂 check out this website: All About Birds
You can do a search a particular bird, and find out interesting facts, including their “typical voice” sound. Make sure you check out the Barred Owl. We have those around here and it sounds downright spooky at night. This is All About Birds’ description of their call: A large owl of extensive woodlands, the Barred Owl is familiar for its distinctive “who-cooks-for-you, who-cooks-for-you-all” hooting.
And the Red-Winged Blackbird call that they have is one “syllable” short of the sound the ones around make. Interesting.
