As August advances, birdsong becomes more sparse. A walk along the Dofasco Trail then to the Vinemount Swamp shows a great diversity of species, just with a bit less acoustic enthusiasm.

The Eastern Meadowlark is a bird of the tallgrass prairie, found in eastern North America and known for its melodious song. Hi! My name is Rob. I’m a naturalist and software engineer in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. For a decade I’ve been learning bird identification both by eye and ear, and occasionally leading small group birding outings with the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club. In the last few years I’ve also been recording birdsong, both with my handheld setup (iPhone + mic) and with automated bioacoustic recording devices I’ve built or acquired. Last year I set up the Hamilton Bioacoustics Research Project where we’ve recorded thousands of hours of soundscapes in natural spaces throughout our region. We’ve also devised various methods for volunteers to turn the recordings into observational data. This was a stepping-stone towards the creation of the Songbirding podcast.
