Nocturnal flight calls of migrating birds

Check them out if you have ever stood outside on a good night for migration listening to migrating songbirds.

I've experimented a little with using their microphone design, but I have made one using just a regular ice-cream-cone style microphone in their design, which was quite good at recording most species.

A problem I had was the microphone (and computer) need to be properly grounded, otherwise there is some static (this is particularly a problem in old homes).
