Here is the audio from my outside microphones for New Year’s 2010. I started recording at 11:51 PM on December 31, 2009, and stopped recording at 12:30 AM on January 1, 2010.

This is the microphone for the left side. Note the foil taped to the cable in an effort to keep birds away.

This is the microphone for the right side.  I had to remove the tissue paper being used to reduce wind noise because birds kept pecking at it. In addition, the cable running to this microphone was damaged by a squirrel and it is more than 15 feet shorter. The microphone still works quite well.
