In early June, Environment Canada scientists will be visiting the Riverside Wetlands to study the Veery - identifying, banding, and affixing geolocators to these birds, to learn more about their breeding and migration patterns.
Although the Veery may appear to be another one of those “small brown birds”, you probably heard its call at dusk. https://youtu.be/cK1gaTqBRRk
The name "Veery" was inspired by the song that males use to defend territory. A series of variations on veer, the song descends slightly in pitch, and resonates as if whirling around inside a metal pipe. A group of nineteenth-century observers called it “an inexpressibly delicate metallic utterance…accompanied by a fine trill which renders it truly seductive.” Wikipedia.org
