Sound Recordings of the Broad-tailed Hummingbird which continued on August 20

A revisit to the park today with the sole intent on recording this Broad-tailed Hummingbird’s mechanical in flight sounds proved fruitful (note these are “not” vocalizations but sounds made by the wings movement while in flight).  Here are several audio recordings should you opt to visit the park.  These are the sounds you want to listen for (3 samples below). The bird was heard then seen at 4pm and also at 5:46 note the two hour gap between pepper tree visits. Mornings appear to be a better choice as per the posts in the Yahoo Group for Orange County Birding [Post updated July 2024 with Sound recordings].
