I was at Long Beach to help with the plover fencing today. First of all, thank you to all of the volunteers who showed up to help. It was a beautiful day and many hands made for light work. It isn't fun when there are only a few folks helping.
One bonus was getting to see and hear Mr. Long Beach long-calling. It struck me as quite deep toned and guttural. I tried to get some video but all you can hear is the wind. It might be good if someone who is a better videographer could try to get some footage of the bird vocalizing. He long-called at least 3 times when I was there and Keith and Donna also heard him. Donna mentioned that his voice seems deeper than it was last spring.
