Title: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on June 29, 2011, 07:51:17 AM

Here will be a topic where we can post Eagle vocalizations, captured through the webcam & from the ground.
We will also post observations of vocalization behaviours, as seen from the ground.
You may need to turn up your volume quite high here, turn off the cam sounds & any other sounds, & really concentrate on the sounds of each video.
i will try to be descriptive of the sounds as they occur in the videos, to help you to find them easily i hope.
Title: Mum*s panting, Eaglets*s food vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on June 29, 2011, 08:26:28 AM

In this video, thanks Paint!  :heart , Mum flies in with a fish.
The first vocalization we can note is the sound the two Eaglets make when they spot their parent from far off, flying in with food, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Next we hear Mum panting from the exertion of bringing in the fish.
Then we hear the happy churblings of the the Eaglets.
Some of the eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees, as Mum prepares to feed, are followed by an oink type sound.
We hear more happy churbling, as they are fed.

Title: the sound an Eaglet makes upon egesting food
Post by: boonibarb on June 29, 2011, 08:41:18 AM

In this video, thanks Sparky!  :eclove , we hear the little sounds David makes as he egests food.
He would make these sounds egesting a pellet as well, but i believe this is too late in the day to be a pellet, which are usually egested in the early morning.

Post by: boonibarb on June 29, 2011, 08:48:36 AM

Thanks, boonib! Now we can all learn eaglese!  :biggrin3

What a great idea to take more notice of the vocals...another completely different facet of learning about the eagles.  
  :heart
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: NancyM on June 29, 2011, 09:35:54 AM
great idea, booni!  We should correlate these vocalizations with the words some of us use to describe them  (chachunka,  screep, teakettle, etc)  :biggrin6

I second that!  Because I was without computer for a year and a half or more, I missed the whole identication-of-sounds process.  It would be nice to learn them together.

Sparky captured a fun sound made by David in this video!
The motion is in slow mode, but the sound is at regular speed.
Sparky recorded the sound twice in a row, so you see & hear the same things twice in this slow mo video.
Thanks Sparky!  :heart

Title: nicker sound
Post by: boonibarb on June 30, 2011, 07:59:47 AM


Sometimes the Eaglets & even the parents make a nickering sound, like a horse.
This is what a nicker sounds like.

Title: David chittering
Post by: boonibarb on July 06, 2011, 11:15:44 PM

Cali recorded this video of David making interesting vocalizations.
i*ll call it chittering til we come up with a better term.
When i heard this, it sounded familiar.
It brought me back to the days when the Eaglets were a lot smaller.
Mum or Dad would be brooding the Eaglets, would get up to change position over them, & one of the Eaglets would make this sound when they had been stepped on or when they thought they were about to be stepped on, as a warning to the parent.
It appears that David has his  right foot caught somehow, beneath a stick?
Notice Alexandra, upon hearing his vocalization, jumps down from the close up cam box immeditately to go to David to see what is wrong.
Wish we could see what happens at the end of this video, that gets cut off.
Did he have his foot caught in a stick or something?
How did he free himself?

Booni - when I watched that episode live I was immediately reminded of how David would make those same little twittering sounds when a parent got close to stepping on him when he was just a little fluffball - almost like a little warning or a distress call.   :ecsad

Post by: Cawatcher on July 07, 2011, 04:26:11 AM
David gets his foot loose flaps aroung the nest goes over to his sis for kiss and they settle next to each other for comfort  i think

Title: interesting after dark Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on July 10, 2011, 09:30:42 AM

A few people noticed a strange sound last evening around 11:17!
Thank you Sparky for finding it in the archives & recording it for us!  :heart
Okay, at 5 seconds into this video, you hear a shuffle on the Nest.
At 35 you hear a whistle type sound!
Then you hear the sounds of a noisy late party near the Nest.  :ecnono
At 2:33 into the video, you hear what was described as the sound of a Werewolf on the Nest!  :mhihi
What do you suppose this sound IS?  :puzzled2

Post by: dizzymom70 on July 10, 2011, 09:43:01 AM
It sounded like a dog in the neighborhood to me. When my dog is out after dark, he makes that weird bark at intruders, such as racoon and opossum. He does it all the time.
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: emc on July 11, 2011, 12:00:46 PM
I heard dog barking earlier in video also, and the other sound like a dog growling. But really loud, or really close to microphone.

I am so glad you are doing eagle sounds.  :biggrin3

Post by: boonibarb on July 11, 2011, 10:34:27 PM

Sparky recorded this interesting vocalization video sunday!
Mum & Dad are trilling like crazy in the Babysitting Tree.
Alexandra is on the cam box & David is in the Nest & you can hear them whistling in reply.
They are watching Mum & Dad*s every move!
Watch Alexandra blinking, as she watches.
i just LOVE watching Eaglets blink!  :s*

Dad is on the Nest feeding the Eaglets Opossum.
Mum lands at 5:05 into the recording & David makes the MOST excited & musical churbling in his happiness to see her there!  :hearts2
Or is he telling her all about the Opossum they just ate?  :mhihi
Look at him following her around the Nest, talking to her!

Strange vocalizations from nest #4.

After Trimblet flew from the nest (not her first flight; she had been flying for at least 3 days), one of the parents circled low over her, then returned to the babysitting tree and made these very strange sounds.
The sounds lasted for several minutes.
The parent seems to be broadcasting the sound all around, not to a single target. The eaglet is in a tree to our right, the road where the traffic sounds come from is to our left.
Some of the movement is the wind shaking the tree, but much of it is from the hand-held camera.
This video is also posted on the Nest #4 thread.

Post by: Tigerlady105 on July 16, 2011, 01:46:58 AM
I don't know much about bird sounds, compared to many of our chatters, but those sound more like a smaller bird, not an eagle, to me.   :puzzled2
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: winterwren on July 16, 2011, 08:31:46 AM
I know, Tiger... These are unlike anything I've heard from eagles - except for the broken-up trills I heard at Shingle Spit while two pairs were circling each other and establishing their territories' boundaries. One eagle, a male, was making a sound that was akin to this, but more rhythmic.

But it was clear that this sound was coming from the Nest #4 parent we're seeing in the video... it was actually a bit louder than appears on this video. Some parts were quite piercing.

Isn't this fun?
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on July 16, 2011, 09:09:24 AM

Wow wrennie!
WICKED cool vocalizations!
It is clear, indeed, that these sounds are coming from the Eagle.
Will you be able to figure out whether this was the Mum or the Dad?
Thanks for capturing them, & for adding them to this topic!
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on July 21, 2011, 08:50:01 PM

Sparky recorded this video with an interesting vocalization, a crop grunt!
Hear it very clearly at 2:56 into the video.
i believe the sound is made by the Eaglet lying down, David?
Thanks for recording this Sparky!

This is the video Sparky made of Alexandra leaving the Nest for the second time today.
At 15 seconds into the video, David makes a sweet sound to her.  :hearts2
Kinda heart breaking, to hear & see him, actually.
He seems quite puzzled & upset by her departure.
At 50 seconds in, he kind of whistles to her.

This is the video Beans made of Alexandra*s first fledge & return.
Thanks Beans!  :heart

At around 5:20 into the video, David spots Alexandra doing a flyby, then we see her fly from right to left.
At about 5:27 into the video David starts screeping, making the sound that they make when an adult is bringing in food, but it is Alexandra he is announcing.
She lands on him & they tussle.
He goes into submission for a long time after that.
Poor fella.
He was just happy to see her again!  :ecsad

David is on the close up cam box, Mum is on the Nest, Alexandra is out on the Runway Branch squee-oinking at Mum.
She does a bit of the temper tantrum vocalizations.
At 1:48 Alexandra flies into the Nest next to Mum & really gives her the what-for!
At 2:40 into the video, she makes a very interesting set of sounds, including something that sounds like a small horn!
The she throws in a few churbles & a coupla chirpy chirps.
More sweet sounds at 3:56.
Thanks Cali.

Post by: Mishka on July 26, 2011, 11:45:08 PM
GREAT thread Booni!!!

One thing I've really fallen in love with this year is the chittering / churbling sounds.  In a nest with sibs who get along, you hear a lot of it, it's their conversational sound.  You also hear it when they're at the stage where they're alone for much of the day, but Mom comes back at night, and the 'lets tell her about their day.  Or when they've finished eating and are happy campers.
They also seem to use it sometimes for scolding, as in "Dad, what do you mean you only brought a BRANCH??!" or "Hey, quit hopping on me, go do your flap/hopping over there!"


Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on July 27, 2011, 10:30:31 PM

Mishka, it seems our fabulous videographers caught some of this very type of vocalizations today!  :hearts2

In this video, Mum is on the Nest, David is on the Balcony.
At about 25 seconds in, David spots Dad flying in & starts screeping to him!
Dad lands on Mum with a stick, & gets a beaking for his trouble.  :heart
Mum manages to cachunk & beak Dad at the same time!
You GO Mum!  :thumbup:
David screeps non-stop while Dad places the stick.
1:33 in, Mum hops to the cam box, David ups the screeping.
2:36 into the video, Mum is having a hard time watching Dad arrange sticks on the Nest.
But she stays on the cam box.
With Mum on the cam box while Dad is working down in the Nest, you really get an appreciation for how high up the cam box actually IS from the Nest.
At 3:33 into the video, David shoves his way up beside Mum onto the cam box.
David seems to be screeping at Dad from the cam box.
Mum hops down to the Balcony & David hops down into the Nest to join Dad at the same time.
Immediately David*s vocalizations change to happy churbles! :eclove
Wow!
He sounds like some different kind of bird here!
How lovely!
He continues to whistle & churble & screep at Dad from the back side of the Nest.
What*re you doin* with those sticks Dad??
Did I tell you what I did today?

At 17:45 into the video, you can see David watch Alexandra land on the stump & then he begins to talk to HER!
She screeps loudly in reply & it gets louder when she lands in front of the microphone.

Wooo hooooo!
WHAT a video!
Thanks Paint!

Post by: boonibarb on July 27, 2011, 10:43:44 PM

At 20 seconds into this video, David spots Mum flying in with a fish & begins his screeping!
Once he gets his fish, he oinks & screeps his appreciation to her.
Then he churbles!
He*s too busy churbling at her to eat his fish.
Next he plunks himself down in the Nest & prevents her from nestorating.
At 4:50 in, Mum preens David.
He*s not thrilled with that.
At 5:28 into the video, Mum scootches down beside David in the Nest.
Or tries to.  :biggrin6
David*s just tickled about the whole thing.

Thanks Sparky!

David is really happy to have Mum spending time with him in the Nest.
Listen to him churble at 40 seconds into the video.
Over the sounds of the construction, you can hear him churbling his pleasure throughout this video.

Thanks Sparky!

David churbles to Mum as she re settles.

Post by: Mishka on July 28, 2011, 11:55:08 AM
I was blessed to be watching/listening when all that went down yesterday, so I quickly begged for some videos, and paint and sparkie came thru big time!!  These are great examples of what I meant about it being a conversational tone - even tho in David's case, the conversation is usually one-sided.  What a chatterbox!

The best examples of this that I've seen with with the Decorah eagles earlier this year.  This was a rare nest of triplets who all got along.  Of course, it helps that their nest is right on top of a fishery, so food is never an issue!!
Anyway, there was a period of a couple weeks when the three of them seemed to spend time every morning plunked down right in front of the cam, having these long conversations.  It was incredible!  You could see their beaks & tongues moving as they chittered, even see each one looking at whoever was speaking.
I didn't think at the time to ask anyone to tape it, and haven't been able to find any videos out there that show it.  But that's when I fell in love with the sound!
Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: luvthebirds on July 28, 2011, 01:54:04 PM
Thank you, Mishka, for sharing about the Decorah youngsters' conversations!  How delightful.  This is the first time that we have been able to see two eaglets grow up together on the Hornby cam.  It is so special to see (and hear!) their interactions.  I have heard about human twins who have their own language/way of communicating.  Seeing the eagle siblings interact made me think of that.

If only we could understand "eaglet".  I sure would like to know what they are saying!  (Although I do have some ideas! :eclol)

This video begins with no one visible in the Nest.
We very soon hear David screeping from the Balconcy when he spies Mum flying in with a fish!
He hops up to the close up cam box screeping at her arrival with food.
He goes mantling to the Elevator, screeping & oinking with his fish.
Not a few seconds later, Alexandra comes roaring in from the beach, screeping the whole way in.  :eclol
They both compete for who can split our ears first!

Thanks Sparky!

At 2:30 into the video, Alexandra comes roaring into the Nest chased by a Crow!
David screeps loudly at her arrival.
Did he think she brought food for him?
He goes into submission right away.

Title: Re: Eagle Vocalizations
Post by: boonibarb on August 02, 2011, 07:26:08 AM

Dad flies in & eats the fish head on the Nest & David has LOTS to say to him!
He makes very interesting sounds while he is feaking his beak on the close up cam box.
At 3:45 into the video, you can hear Alexandra come screeping in & land on the wide angle cam to talk to Dad as well.
Watch Dad watching her fly in & land!
At about 8 minutes into the video, Dad feeds David, who is squeeing & making lovely churbles while eating.
A bit later, we hear Alexandra on the wide angle cam, then she drops in to give us her opinion of things.
Thanks Paint!

Watch the flock of small birds take off from the lower branches visible of the Nest Tree right at the beginning of this video!
We hear screeping when this video starts, then a second Eaglet screeping as well.
All through the video, there is an Eaglet screeping furiously in the near distance.
Sometimes the sound gets closer.
At 7 minutes in, there are some interesting calls.
i think we hear an Eaglet & then one call from an adult, then the Eaglet again.
At 9:45 into the video, we hear Mum gulling.
At 11:08, David*s peeping gets louder as he leaves, i believe, the Babysitting Tree, then flies out towards the Blue Roof House & the water, peeping the whole way, he does a loop & lands on the wide angle camera!
Now he*s REALLY loud!
Thanks Paint!

This video opens up to Mum on the Nest digging in the nesting material.
Some quiet peeping can be heard in the background, possibly from the Babysitting Tree or the lower Balcony branches.
i suspect the lower Balcony branches, David*s hiding spot discovered by wren.
At about 5:05 into the video, Mum sneezes, possibly from digging in the nesting material.

This video opens up with Mum perched on the close up camera & David talking to her in the background, perhaps from his lower Balcony branch perch.
You just HAVE to listen to the whole thing.
i am totally charmed by all of David*s vocalizations.
In this video, David demonstrates that he is part Canary!
He is something else!  :heart
Thanks Cali!

Upon re listening to this video, i realize that we are hearing TWO Eaglets vocalizing here.

Thank you Cali for giving me the heads up to this video!

This video opens up to Mum standing over the remains of a fish head.
i notice in the background a vocalization that i heard from the ground when i was there yesterday evening.
It sounds a bit like an Eaglet, but is actually another bird.
i don*t recognize what this bird might be.
At 13:02 into the video, you can see that Dad is on the Stump!
i wonder when he arrived there?
He jumps down to the close up cam box & Mum gives him a talking to, using the vocalizations she gives when Dad brings food to the Nest.
i hear the Eaglets making a sound similar to this around food!
i LOVE this Mum vocalization!
Dad makes some sweet sounds as well.
At 13:30 into the video, Dad jumps down into the Nest with Mum & there is some beaking!
There are also some very interesting vocalizations!
Mum is trying to keep Dad away from the fish, i believe, but in the end she gives way to him.
Dad eats the fish & Mum flies away from the close up cam box.

At 1:11 into the video, she changes her tune & moves to the right on the limb a bit.

At the very end of the video you hear her screeping as she flies to & lands on the stump.

In this video, Dad is on the Nest, & you can hear his vocalizations right away.
He is being visited by a two year old Eagle, who may be Hope!
She is near him, in the Babysitting Tree.
i have always wondered at what age Eagles begin to trill!
Well, at 15 seconds into this video, you can hear this visiting immature Eagle trill!
Dad replies right away, then the youngster finishes her twittering trill.
She does it again twice at 27 seconds.
50 seconds in, we hear Dad on the Nest again, to our right.
Also at 1:35 & 1:45 & 2:19.
Dad was definitely eyeing this youngster, & talking to them, but he did not chase them away.
5:10, Dad vocalizes.
5:49, again.

The youngster makes a LOVELY sound, very different to that of the adult.

Well, I was just going to check new messages here before I go to bed tonight.  And what do I find but fascinating sounds of Mum, Dad, Alexandra, David and so many other nests.  Guess I'll be up late.

Booni you outdid yourself with these videos.  I especially loved the gentle sounds of the Briglet - so different from the others nests you've documented.

Studying these videos will help us identify the uniqueness as well as the similarities of all the Hornby nests.

You are so very special!

Title: Gulling
Post by: boonibarb on December 04, 2011, 07:30:08 PM

Dooki & i biked to the Co-op on this morning.
As soon as we got near, i could hear intermittent gulling sounds coming from the area of Nest #24!
To me it reminded me of the sounds Mum Hornby makes when she is on the Nest, & Dad is bringing her food.
But Mum #24 kept it up.
So i went to investigate.
i only had my little camera with me, but i got this little video of the sounds she made.
i was thinking, while observing, that Mum #24 is the Eagle we can see in the video.
You can see the Nest below her to the left of the tree trunk.
But, while i watched, this Eagle flew to a nearby perch tree while Mum continued to gull from the Nest Tree.
So what the heck was going on?
If the Eagle in the video was Dad, he sure wasn*t out there bringing in food.
If this were the Dad, why was Mum continuing to gull?
My guess is that the Eagle you can see in the video is a sub adult, visiting the Nest Tree, while Mum talks to them with gulling sounds.
We have heard similar sounds from Mum & Dad when there is a young one nearby.
Perhaps this is a Nest #24let from a past season.

winterwren & i have heard this vocalization at Shingle Spit Nest too.
It is made by the adults when there is an Eaglet on the Nest.
It is sort of an ak ak ak type sound.

I concur!

Turn the volume way up to listen to the first link in Booni's posting, the video of the Nest #9 adult.

Interesting how the #4 adult does only one "huck" at a time. Niner's Mom and Mom Shingle Spit sounded more like Semi, making series of "huck-huck-huck" sounds.

My impression of the Shingle Spit calls was that Mom was wanting to reassure her eaglet. Mom Shingle Spit was flying high, patrolling the neighbourhood, at a time when the eaglet didn't need her to be constantly on the nest anymore.

I'm associating those calls with the mothers, but then I could be wrong about that part.

None of the eagle calls has a single fixed meaning. The meaning is also dependant on the context.

It's interesting to check out the different vocalizations that you've all posted from the wild and compare them to what we get at MARS from the 'captive' eagles. I've heard this 'chuffing' noise from a few eagles before, softer than that piggy oink they sometimes make, but never as consistently as Semi does it. In the other video that I put together she was also 'talking', even when she was in a lot of pain. It seems like the different personalities that we see in the live cams really manifest themselves when the birds are under stress and, I could be wrong, but it has always felt like Semi was actually using her voice to communicate, eagle style. If only we knew what it was she was saying!

Listen to her vocalizations as she accepts the gift!  :heart
The sounds is very fast & short, compared to what we are used to with Mum Hornby.
i used to have plenty of time to run up from downstairs to see Dad bringing in a gift for Mum.
She would start announcing from a long ways off!

Some more vocalizations from the Decorah pair.
This first one is VERY interesting!
It sounds like it might be mating!
You can hear Dad*s high pitched sweet & rapid calls, then he stops & you can hear Mum*s hoarser calls at the very end.
In the upper left hand corner, is there not the shadow hint of left & right wings flapping at the same time as Dad is doing his high pitched excited vocalizing? ----------> mating?
i believe we*re hearing mating here.

Post by: winterwren on January 31, 2012, 05:49:01 PM
In the past few days I've been working on two sides of the nests 6-7 (Savoie Farm) territory and I've heard a lot of vocalizations that seem to have a different "accent" than the local eagle dialect.

I've noticed in the past that Mom Savoie sounds different, but I couldn't quite get a mental picture beyond that. Now I'm just starting to pinpoint what the differences actually are.

The most noticeable aspect is that the local eagle's trills seem to be a steady staccato throughout, with the first notes faster than the last ones but each note very distinct from the others.

Mom Savoie's trills blend the first two notes, and sometimes the first three, in a sliding sort of sound, more like a loon's call or a horse's neigh.
I have heard that rhythm on Vancouver Island also - and on some of the eagle cams.

Mom Savoie's voice is also higher than Mom Hornby's, and harder to tell apart from her mate's.

Post by: NancyM on February 01, 2012, 07:49:28 PM
Those Decorahs certainly have a very different relationship than the Hornbys. Mom Dec is much younger than this Dad (I wonder if that makes a difference); he brings food to the nest before eggs are laid, but not always as a gift for her; he beaks her and she "takes" it.

We've also seen a couple of so-called mating rituals where Mom was noisy and flapping her wings and had a foot up on Dad  (in the videos Cali posted above).

Comparative eagleology is very interesting!

I was digging in the archives for something else, when I ran into another example of the uck-uck-uck call that Semi has been doing. Not a recording, just a description. But since I was the one who made the description, I know it's the same kind of vocalization that Semi and Mom Shingle Spit and Niner's mama were making. It happened when Mom Trimble was trying to teach her Trimblet to pounce onto a prey instead of waiting to be fed.

The third time she took off with the prey instead of feeding it to Trimblet, Mom Trimble made that call.
Click here to see the post. (http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=646.msg61386#msg61386) The mention of the vocalization is toward the end of that post.

i was walking near Ford Cove yesterday & i heard regular gulling of an Eagle.
i could see two adults perched near the breakwater.
These were apt to be the Nest #32 adults.
Later in my walk, i hear two Eagles gulling & then trilling!
i looked over & there was a youngster circling in the air over them.
One of the adults took off & did a circle, lower down, & the youngster mosied on away.
It seems to me the adults have a language they use when there are youngsters around.
Was this one of their youngsters?

I was working outdoors near the Bakery today and I kept hearing faint trills. After a while I realised that the sound was always exactly the same, without the slightest variation, and that it always came from wherever the local flock of starlings happened to be.

Observation post by wren in Nest #6 Savoie Farm topic - Last week I had a phone call from one of the neighbours of this nest.

She told me that there were dozens of eagles around, being very noisy, locking talons and whirling in mid-air and crashing into her rose bushes.  :eceek

I was thinking that this might be because there was a dead seal or sea lion on the beach near the nest.

So last Friday, May 11, I went to have a look.

Right away I found Mom Savoie sitting on a branch beside the nest. The air was full of very strange sounds!
I started filming right away, before I even set up my tripod, because I was worried about missing those squeaky youngster sounds.
So in this video you get a shaky jumpy image of Mom Savoie by her nest, then the nest itself. Turn up the volume and listen to what I heard.

Observations continued by wren - Sure enough... There is a dead something on the beach; looks like a large seal.

Here you see 2 youngsters hanging out, one standing on the carcass, the other one to the side. Once in a while you can hear some of the other eagles carrying on in the background. Listen carefully around 30 seconds and again at 58 seconds into the video... Somebody is making a strange cross between a trill and the way Semi talks!

wren - May 11, 4:14 pm.

Somehow Dad Savoie has appeared beside Mom. Maybe he's been there all along, sitting on the nest, out of view? So now he's perched on the rim of the nest and his head is just visible in this video.

So, I've been there for 15 minutes and the place is full of eagles, but this is the first time Mom and Dad are alerting. There is an adult or sub-adult flying right near the nest.

Mom and Dad have been completely ignoring everyone else. The altercations I saw were all between visiting adults and sub-adults! The youngsters sound off a lot but they don't seem to be chasing each other too much; just a bit of posturing right by the dead seal. During the hour I spent there, Mom and Dad went on an obvious chase just once. The rest of the time they just watched from the nest or from their babysitting tree, sounding off only once in a while.

So in this video, you hear Mom Savoie's gull calls; the closest trills are Dad's. There is also another adult trilling in the distance, probably the one they're worried about.

If you turn up the volume, you also hear at least 2 youngsters in the distance.
At the very end of the video is a very strange sound, like the sound of some dogs fighting. That sound came from the edge of the water - quite far away, and it was loud enough to register well on the recording.
There were no dogs on the beach.
I'm thinking that the sound may have been from a pair of otters. They look cute but when they are fighting or mating, they sound fearsome!
At the same time as the growling snarling sound, you can hear that youngster who sounds a bit like Semi again.

wren recordeded an excellent example of a young Eagle making a *rusty hinge* trill.
Listen to the video at one minute in.
You can see the youngster make the call, then another youngster replies.

Thanks for recording this video Sparky!

As this video starts, Mum is flying into the Nest with a small fish in her foot.
She seems to be making *food coming in calls*, or maybe there is a visitor nearby, wanting her fish?

Here is some video i took at the Brigantine Nest.
Mum had been on the Nest, causing the two Eaglets to screep at her, then she flew to this water side perch Tree.
i don*t know if this type of calling is a type of alarm & at the same time communicating to the Eaglets.

Cali recorded a vocalization we heard this morning.
Mum & Dad are on the Nest & we hear what sounds at first to be a Sea Bird, but then the sound turns into trilling!
 
Unusual call.. a youngster?

i could hear an Eagle gulling & the sound was close!
Turned out Mum Niner was in the Tree across the road from me.
The Niners use this Tree a lot, but unfortunately there is often greenery between me & them.
i was interested in the vocalizations, so i did a video.
She is pointed in the direction of her Nest Tree, & keeping an eye on things there.
She is making very soft vocalizations, so turn up your volume.
On the one hand they sound like food-coming-in calls, but then they also sound like the calls Eagles make when they are talking to their youngsters.
Sometimes you can see her beak move, but you don*t hear the soft sound, but i could hear it from the ground.
Perhaps she is reassuring her youngster/s on the Nest?
When she look over her shoulder to our right, she is looking at Mum & Dad*s territory.
A minute in i just HAVE to swat that darn Mosquito!  :mhihi
winterwren & i have both heard these soft uk-uk vocalizations, i believe at Shingle Spit?, Nest #6/7 Savoie? & defintely one of the Brigs makes these sounds.
i have heard Mum Niner make sounds like this here. (http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=128.msg19883#msg19883)

Here is another Eagle making those same, interesting vocalizations!
This one was at the Gravel Pit.
i took Otto here for our walk this day.
Right away i heard lots of Eagles, screeching & calling.
i suspected there was a food source there, but we wandered around & never found one.
Though i could hear many Eagles, i only ever spotted this one, making very interesting vocalizations!

i had to watch this video a few times.
It sounds like an adult making these calls, but it is Scootch!
Watch the beak open & close, & then you hear the vocalizations.
At the very beginning of the video, is that a Starling imitating Scootch or the other way around?
At 36 seconds into the video, you hear Mum making three notes & then does Scootch copy her?

Thanks for the video cali!  :heart

Scootch starts off screeping four times, then at about 50 seconds in, she does what almost sounds like a trill!
Also done around 1:30 & 1:40 into the video.
2:10 in she does it twice.
At 3:00, she goes back to screeping.

Thanks for the video cali!

Two videos of Scootch preening.
In each she makes a short call.
In the first one you can hear Rufus barking.
Then you hear Otto joining in.

Scootch calls twice in this one.

Okay, this is going back a ways!
wren & i spent the day, visiting a good few of the Nests together!
Nest #20 was very interesting that day.
Mum Nest #20 was nearby, & she was sure keeping an eye on us two.
She was making that very interesting reassuring call that Eagle (Mums?) make to their young.
i remember we were very excited to hear this, & i was super happy to get a recording of it.
