My Telinga Parabolic Microphone, with Pro 7 handle and Dat stereo mic finally arrived from Sweden.
Parabolic microphones have been used for years when recording species specific. I have high hopes for this new microphone when combined with the Sound Designs 7XX series of very high quality field recorders.
My first recording was of a Song Sparrow. The background sound is of wind in the tree tops.
