Levee Road, Mississippi River flood plain, Cora, Illinois
May 30, 7:13 a.m.
Sunrise at 5:39
And here are five songs from the third dickcissel along Levee Road beside the Mississippi River; he sings just like his two neighbors do.
Here's a summary of the dickcissel dialects you can listen to:
Illinois, Shawnee National Forest, one male: IL-107
Another dickcissel, great crested flycatcher; the low frequency rumble is from the Cora coal works, and from barges along the Mississippi that are loading coal.
