It's amazing. I'll be laying on my hammock and will play the song of any bird around me (usually black-capped chickadees, northern flickers, etc...) and they'll gather in the trees above me trying to find out who's talking to them, really cool (although I feel slightly guilty for screwing with them). I've heard but haven't tried playing a predator bird song and see them scatter.

It ends this way:
"Aware his mate was dead and would never come
back to him again, he cried out with adoring love
. . . and stood beside her with sadness and sorrow."

Living by the Iowa River, we also have bald eagles in season. At times you can see over a dozen of them around certain eddies of the River. And up in Decorah, the Raptor Resource Project set up a live web cam a few years ago and you can watch the returning pair lay and raise their young ones over the course of several months.
But I do always love to see the CO hummers! We will on a few rare occasions see one here, but it seems like everywhere we visit in CO -- family, friends, motels -- all have feeders, and there are always so many of them out there. And they always seem so much more "tame" and accustom to people. I've had several hover right next to me on a few hikes.
