Test Yourself, Challenge Level

Now, you're ready to try some sound files that are a little more difficult. These may contain more than one call, or other sounds that are not from our resident orcas.

Listen to this recording to see if you can identify what you hear. Use the call catalog below to remind yourself of what each call sounds like. Check the box next to each sound that you think you hear. When you're ready, click "Next" to see whether you're right! 

This one's a little more challenging.
