Monday's movie - Bird song quiz

When I was living in New Hampshire, I volunteered at the Squam Lakes Science center.  I loved it.  If you are ever up in that area - around Meredith - make sure you go to the Science center - whatever age you are. You are sure to love it. 

Soon after I began there, I met Dave Erler and went on some of his birdsong walks. He can identify so many birds by their call and it was fascinating to learn from him - and amazing just to walk with him and listen.  I did learn a few, but then we moved out of New Hampshire and had loads of different birds around us and I was lost again!!

Anyhow, todays "Monday's movie" is a little bird song quiz.  Listen in and see how many bird songs you can recognise.  I understand this will be a lot more challenging for those of you who don't live in the US - but maybe the written clues will help!

With a name like Peebee - which makes me think of the bird Phoebe, I guess you have your own song! I wonder if you have any of the birds shown in the video where you live. Yes, it did sound like a woodpecker in the background.
