Sotto voce

In sharp contrast to his black-and-white cousin, the spotted flycatcher (Swedish: Grå flugsnappare) sings in a very low voice. In this recording from Öland in early May 2013 one can see him sing, but although the parabole is aimed at him it is very difficult to distinguish his song from the background. So, is he a Mastersinger? You may not think so, but she does, and that is what counts. Camera: XL-H1A with Canon FD 100-300mm lens. Sound: Telinga Pro 5 with Stereo DAT mic.
