Eagle Vocalizations
« 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.
wooohoooo!

Mum*s panting, Eaglets*s food vocalizations
« Reply #1 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.

the sound an Eaglet makes upon egesting food
« Reply #2 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.

In this video, thank you Sparky!  :biggrin6 , we hear the sweet, quiet little sounds that David makes in reply to the voice of his parent.  :heart
Alexandra is on the cam box, David is on the Prow.

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.

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.

Thanks!

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

nicker sound
« Reply #9 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.

David chittering
« Reply #11 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

interesting after dark Eagle Vocalizations
« Reply #14 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
