Anyone recognize this wacky set of sounds?
It's the sort of mechanical-sounding weirdness that I'd expect from blackbirds or grackles, but this was on top of Lookout Mountain in Ochoco National Forest, which is a high-elevation sagebrush meadow (nearly 7000').
There are five separate call sequences (separated by 1-second gaps in the video), but the first call is the best/clearest.
The purpose of this forum is to help people identify things they've seen while out hiking: wildflowers, trees, birds, insects, small animals, animal tracks, even geographical features like buttes or streams
