What is my vocal type 3

Donkey bridges and reminders for bird calls.


Twin species, and species similar to each other, as well as similar sounding chants

Summer golden chicken: As above but staying on the same pitch.

Shouts: "sisisi" (a little lower than above)

Treecreeper: Short and flush! (Garden paths are short.) Series of notes at the end rising. "Hesch you gseh woni bi?

Shouts: sharp "tiit, sri"

Treecreeper:Long u. Sure! (Forest paths are long). The whole series of notes is lowering, only the last note is higher.

Shouts: less sharp, "srih," less urgent than above

Warbler, Chiffchaff: Long rows (6-20) of "zilp-zalp" calls, usually alternating in pitch. (As if the singer was trying in vain to hit the first note again, but without missing too far.)

Shouts: monosyllabic "hüid", pulled up, changeable.

Fitis warbler: Row v. Whistling sounds (approx. 12) sloping slightly. Sounds similar to chaffinch, but a bit sad, melancholy, like in minor key.

Calls: similar above, but more two-syllable

Wood warbler: short row (4-10) v. Staccato tones, followed by a sloping buoyancy roller. (Sounds like starting one Velosolex) Hovering flight while singing. In addition you can hear a series of pleasant whistling sounds like "djü"

Shouts: "düü"

Mountain warbler: Row (5-10) of equally high beats, similar to the buzz of the above kind, but slower, individual tones clearly separated, a bit rattling. Can be confused with rattle warbler)

Calls: Clearly two-syllable "säid"

Marsh tit: Rattle song. Row (6-8) softly struck notes of medium height. Similar to the rattle warbler but softer. (The swamp is soft) Often you can hear calls like "psja". Quite sharp and pressed.

Mountain Pipit: Usually three long rows of notes that are not sharply defined. Singflug. Middle section rougher and more noisy than the above type.

Shouts: "fist", a little rougher than the above type.

Black redstart: In the morning the first singer: a short three-part song, usually sung from a waiting room.

Middle piece made of rough squashed tones. (as if briefly lost the voice)

Shout: "hüid-tze" the door significantly lower.

Common redstart: Always starts with the same 3 tones, a “dih dede”, whereby the dih is about one or two tones higher. Then follows a short stanza of more or less pure notes. The whole thing is quite individual.

Shouts: "Füid-tack" the füid similar to that of the Fitislaubsänger, the tack clucking. (like pulling the tongue quickly from the roof of the mouth)
