A Veery Strange Sound In The Woods

The Veery is a thrush that can be heard deep in the woods throughout the spring and summer. They have a subtle appearance but there is no mistaking their unique call. If you ever played video games back in the arcade days you might recognize their call as the ending sound of Pac-Man. 

Listen for yourself:
End of Pac-Man game sound
Compare to sound of Veery

Okay, maybe not an exact match but I think you can see where I'm coming from!

Excellent comparison! I don't know if I've heard that bird before but now I sure will listen while hiking!
