Bird songs: can you name that tune?

Seeing is believing, and sometimes hearing can lead to seeing. Recently during a field trip with the Savannah Ogeechee Audubon I realized how important it is to not only know your birds by sight, but by sound as well.

During the winter months males and females appear alike in color, a very drab gray. Upon the arrival of spring the males begin to molt into their brilliant golden yellow plumage. The goldfinch has been lingering in Bryan County nearly all winter long. First reports come in around December and they remain in our ...
