CANYON WREN AND BEE BUZZ: Canyon Wren singing and bees buzzing around the flowers of a Mexican Buckeye. Big Bend National Park, Chisos Mountains Basin area, 10:30am, 11 March, 2017.
I REALLY LIKE this mix of sound. It recorded it in the Basin area high in the Chisos Mountains, along the Window Trail, not far from the popular overlook. Mexican Buckeyes were in full bloom all along the trail and by mid-morning there was quite a buzz in the air. I busied myself recording the bee buzz when a Canyon Wren appeared on the steep slope by the trail. Lucky me ... a nice portrait of wren and bee buzz, just as nature orchestrated it!
