Oros Wildlife Preserve, Woodbridge NJ
I was fortunate that this bird sprung up in a mostly unobstructed area to call. It was quite unfortunate that an airplane flew directly overhead but I was able to clean up the audio a little after trying a “bandpass filter” around 3100hz to isolate the bird vocalization.

If you watch closely you can see us moving a few salamanders to safety.
I am wearing my yellow rainjacket in the night footage. I also found the discolored Spring Peeper in the video!
Nice production by New Jersey Divison of Fish & Wildlife and great organizing by Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey
