Can you identify the bird singing in the video below?

The Utah Birders have a copy of Kenn Kaufman's Kingbird Highway that we are going to give away. It's your chance to get your hands on one of the greatest birding tales around.

We will also give you a few clues. First, the bird singing is NOT a Kingbird of any kind. Second, the video was shot last week east of the Mississippi River. Finally, we are not talking about the bird that can be heard singing in the background at the beginning and the end of the video. The bird in questions repeats itself 4 or 5 times and it the focal sound of the video

Entering to win is easy!

Simply watch and listen to the video above and if you think you know the identity click on the link below to enter the contest by providing your name, your email, the answer to the quiz bird above, and if you would like, a brief explanation of why. If you submit the correct answer you will be entered into a drawing for the book.


The only kicker is that this contest is only going to last 48 hours! Your answer must be received no later than 9:00pm Mountain Time on Friday,April 29, 2010. We will announce the winner and an explanation of the quiz bird the following morning and the winner will have their copy as fast as we can get it to them!
