This wood thrush was recorded around 7:30 in the morning in heavy woods in deep southern Illinois. Unlike my earlier posting of the wood thrush singing at dusk, this morning recording has the wood thrush singing with lots of company, although he clearly rises above his neighbors. 17 seconds into the recording you hear the drumming of a woodpecker, and at one-minute 20 seconds into the recording you hear the distinctive-lonely sounding call of the huge Pileated Woodpecker. Recording made with good-quality stereo microphones so use headphones to get a wonderful experience.

    The same thing that happened to user, dunmorea a week ago just happened to me too & by SME & I have no idea why since this is a Creative Commons 0 license. I looped it, but it's saying the affected parts are oddly from 00:00 - :34 seconds & 17:54 - 18:35 minutes. That's the oddest things I've ever seen. Today is November 16, 2021.

    Hi Dunmorea. This is very startling. No, nothing has changed, as always, this sound I posted so people like you can use it for free under the Creative Commons license.

    If you would like, I can send you this sound via regular email. My email is kevin.boucher@wsiu.org

    Also, if you can, could you email me the Sony notification that you received?

    Thanks so much for letting me know.

    Hi, I really love the birds in this audio and used it in a YT video with credit to you. However, when I checked back, I had a copyright claim on it from Sony Music Entertainment. (SME) Has something changed?
