It was a bit windy outside, so I knew it was going to be difficult to record hummingbird chirps. I need to find a ‘dead cat’ cover for my lav mic I guess. You know … the fluffy black muffs you see attached to microphones. I have one for my shotgun mic, just not for my lav yet. Never expected to need one, but then did you expect to use a lav mic for nature recording?
You can hear the hummingbirds chirping at 1:15 and 2:53 in the clip. I have heard them chirp before, but was never able to record their calls before now.
