I am writing once again to ask the birding community for recordings of
Mourning Warbler songs during spring migration.It is an opportunity to
participate in a Citizens Science Project with two specific goals.1)
Evaluate the use of birdsong as a new tool for studying bird migration.
2) Determine whether different song populations of Mourning Warblers
(Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or
separately to their respective areas of the species’ breeding range.This
posting is for year three of this project.I am making substantial
progress and want to thank everyone who has contributed so far.
All you need to contribute is a smartphone with a voice recording app
and some luck. The web page link below describes the project and how to
make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail (note - I have also
been able to make recordings from videos that birders have sent me).

Here is a link to the recent national Audubon Society story on this
Audubon Society reporting
If you manage to get some recordings, please send them to the Mourning
Warbler Sound Lab (jpitocchATanselm.edu).I would really appreciate your
help and contributions to this Citizens Science Project.
