Thoughts of Spring

Spring is just around the corner! Here in upstate New York, Jefferson’s Salamanders migrated less than a week ago, the woodpeckers are drumming like crazy and I heard a cardinal singing in my yard this very morning. How exciting this is! Just to prime my spring-centric pump, I spent an hour this morning rummaging through some of my favorite springtime soundscapes from previous years and I soon uncovered a true delight … Hickory Mound Meadow, a lovely dawn chorus from early May featuring the gentle gurgle of a spring freshet along with a variety of bird songs … such a delicious taste of things to come!

Meadow Rainsong

Meadow in Light Rain by Lang Elliott

Light rain falls upon an overgrown meadow shortly after sunrise. Rivulets wind across the clearing, draining away excess water from the receding storm. The sun, peeping through the clouds, throws a broad beam of light across the clearing as birds burst into song in excited anticipation of the coming day.

Meltwater Melodies – Podcast

Hi Friends! I’ve just published Meltwater Melodies, an 11-minute binaural podcast recounting my visit to Oregon’s Cascade Mountains high country in mid-June of last year. My adventure only lasted a day, but I managed to snag a number of wonderful spacious recordings featuring various birds and frogs, along with the soothing sounds of meltwater brooks. You’ll hear songs and calls of the following, listed in the order of appearance: Hermit Thrush, Red-breasted Nuthatch, American Crow, woodpecker drums, Varied Thrush, American Robin, Sierra Chorus Frog, Common Nighthawk, Dark-eyed Junco, and more.

Wind Over the Ridge

Don your headphones and join me on a windy ridge in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! Experience and enjoy a soothing binaural immersion featuring a panoply of bird songs typical of high altitude spruce-fir forest in the southern Appalachians.

A Most Beautiful Robin

During all my travels, I’m constantly on the lookout (or rather, “earout”) for the most beautiful robin song. Over the years, I’ve gathered dozens of binaural soundscapes featuring this delicacy, and some are quite nice to behold. But I do believe that the song I recorded at Cranberry Glades Botanical Area in late May of the year 2000 is the finest of them all.

Wood Thrushes Countersinging

Here’s a lovely 6.5 minute soundscape that I just uncovered … two Wood Thrushes singing back-and-forth at dawn, recorded in hardwood forest at Land Between the Lakes Kentucky way back in 1995, about the time I began gathering binaural soundscapes. I rather like it and think it’s a powerful reminder of things to come (yep, SPRING is just around the corner, believe me!).
