Couch's Kingbird - Tyrannus couchii Christopher Adler 2015-12-25 Visalia, Tulare County, California, Tulare (United States) (90 m) call -

This is one continuous recording made at approximately sunrise (7:15 am) in moderate fog, 34F. Subject was about 5m above ground in a sycamore tree. Calling bout began during flight and continued while subject was perched. This recording represents the end of an approximately 1-minute series of calls of the same type. It was extracted from a video recording made with a Canon 7D camera. Low and high frequencies were rolled off to remove some background traffic and wind noise, and gain was boosted but otherwise the recording is unfiltered.
