Call Guide

The aim of these pages is to provide a short cut to spectrograms and recordings of key call types for common nocturnal migrants. Unless otherwise indicated, these recordings are from nocmig recording sessions. They have been processed a little to emphasis the calls but some remnants of urban noise may remain. These pages are not a substitute of the amazing breadth of call variation that can be accessed through xeno-canto, but that breadth can be baffling when first starting out.
