Racket tailed Drongo mimicking CSE call. U can also hear palm squirrels alarm call and crows creating a din.All this was due to the presence of an OHB in the vicinity and the crows were mobbing it.

Recorded with a Nokia mobile and processed (thanks to patra sab) on I dont know which software to improve the sound quality....:001_smile:

I am experimenting with a few softwares. If I remember right, I processed this with audacity. I edited some handling noise and increased the gain, so the sounds have become louder. These sounds increase our understanding of nature and helps in visualising the situation.

Nice to hear a drongo mimicking a CSE call, I had never heard that. The squirrel calls are nicely audible. Thanks for sharing.
