We made a cassette tape recording of a Warbler that's been chorteling in our garden for the last 3 weeks. I am not technical at all, so all I have is this cassette with a few minutes of recorded sound on it. Who do I ask to listen to it and tell me whether this is a Marsh Warbler? I don't even know whether the recording will be clear enough. Heeellllp, please!

Me!! I would be happy to help you with it. In fact if you can get a copy to me on tape I can even digitize it for you and compare sonograms to various know warbler recordings. Recording and analyzing sounds is what I put most of my energy into when it comes to my birding.

Thanks Doug, I just want a friend (who lent me her recorder) to listen to the tape, and then I will contact you. I would really appreciate the help.

Pleasure.

Warblers are not to difficult once you learn the finer points of how to differentiate their calls.

Doug,
I finally saw the little warbler for long enough to make a 90% positive ID. It's a Marsh Warbler. Saw it this morning for about a minute, white throat, creamy breast, slopey forehead, greyish back, combined with the song, which I will get to you as soon as you let me know how I can contact you to deliver it. (Bulbuls and Crested Barbet were swearing at the cat, and Mr Warbler came out of the bush to see what the fuss was all about).
Cheers
Amanda
