    Cripes...never thought about that! For now mine only peep & lightly whistle, but not the "bo bob white" whistle.

    Mine do also about a half hour after daybreak but it only lasts about 5 to 10 minutes, sounds neat when 100 birds are talking at the same time. [​IMG]

    Yeah, my boys the bob's have been my alarm clock for years. And there are a few of them that I recognize the calls to. Although once one goes off, they all follow suit. [​IMG]

    I can hardly wait for my bobs to start whistling..it will just be something different to listen to aside from the chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks and my Macaws. LOL

    You-tube has some recordings. Maybe dig around on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology site as they carry many bird calls on record.
