I recently returned from a recording expedition which took me from New York to Texas and back. Click on the play button underneath the photo below to hear a recording made early on in my trip.
Arriving in Missouri on the evening of July 28, I spent the night sleeping in my tent in a beautiful hardwood forest along a ridge overlooking the “Big Muddy,” otherwise known as the Missouri River. Awakening at first light, I was completely surprised by the rich chorus of Wood Thrushes, sounding off from all directions. As usual, I had my soundscape microphone already in position, with a cable running to my recorder placed next to me in my tent. So all I had to do was turn my recorder on, hit “record”, and then doze off to the melodic chorus, quite unexpected for late July and truly a gift!

I hope you find this recording as melodic and pleasing as I do!
