WHAT BIRD IS IT???
We’ve got a bit of a problem
Identifying a sound…
Coming from neighboring swampland,
From birds or raccoons around?
Its loud, high-pitched “chittering”
From several places will call….
The creatures that are calling
Don’t seem to be moving at all.
It could even be amphibian
In nature making the sound…
If only we had a naturalist near,
To help out by being around.
Yes this seems like something you could figure out. Well, you did make a poem out of it.
I think I have…! it isn’t a bird at all. or raccoon. It is the “common grey tree frog” or Hyla chrysoscelis….I found a recording of it at http://www.cmnh.org, in their Index of All Frog Calls! 🙂
