I may have told this story before but I will repeat it relative to the recent posts regarding the Song Sparrow.? The Song Sparrows in our yard, when they complete the whole song, will clearly end with? "Chris-to-pher!":? I recently was trying very hard to not think about my son, Christopher and wouldn't you know every Song Sparrow for several days was completing the song with "Christopher!" I also am the one that asked for help or suggestions regarding a rather metallic like call coming from our grass field.? I had lots of suggestions and researched every one with on-line audio? services.? Nothing matched in my opinion.? But I have watched? and listened very carefully and I am quite certain it is a ending call connected with the Bobolink's song.? It sounds like a strumming on a banjo and it has more than one syllable. Just this evening they cut the grass in the field so the Bobolinks may be gone for awhile.? Maybe it is a dialect picked up by the resident Bobolinks here.
