An Eastern Test

As many of you know, I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio at the beginning of the year. I haven't done a whole lot of birding so far but I did get out to a state park today. I was able to get a video of one bird singing with a different species singing in the background. I thought if would be fun to share this video with you all so you could brush up on a couple of Eastern birds. I'll post the answer to what these two birds are in the comments in a few days, but go ahead and take a guess if you'd like.

The birding here seems promising now that the weather is warming up. I hope to be able to share some more details about my experiences here in the coming months. I just recently discovered that the Great Smoky Mountains are about as far away from me as St. George is to Salt Lake. I can't wait to go explore what looks to be an amazing place.

Good Birding,

Bilsky

Field Sparrow. I'm not sure off the top of my head on the background call though.

Background bird sounds like a Tufted Titmouse.

Enjoy the Great Smoky Hills, but you really should leave that craphole of Ohio and come back to Utah.

@Anonymous 1: you are correct! Field Sparrow and Tufted Titmouse. You obviously picked out a Northern Cardinal that I had previously missed as well. @Anonymous 2: There is actually quite a bit to explore out here and I'm looking forward to it. Feel free to come visit whoever you are.
