CALLS ARE KEY

Bird Watching (UK) - - September Id Challenge -

Every month we bang on about calls as a key iden­ti­fi­ca­tion fea­ture, and you will be pleased to hear that this month is no ex­cep­tion. Calls are par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant with many wad­ing birds. They can draw at­ten­tion to fly-overs or birds com­ing into land at your wader patch, but also give vi­tal dis­tin­guish­ing clues from fa­mil­iar species. You can re­vise calls at the amaz­ing ‘wiki’ re­source of xeno-canto, found on­line at: xeno-canto.org
