Dawn Chorus at Beaver Pond. Recorded by Lang Elliott, 31 May 2013, near Ithaca, NY.
As temperatures plummet here in upstate New York (currently 14F and heading for below zero this weekend), I cannot help but dream of spring. Yesterday I stumbled upon a dawn chorus from May 31 in 2013, recorded at a beaver pond not far from where I live. Somehow it had escaped my notice. But when I listened to it, I was struck by its inherent beauty, by the sweetly balanced mix of frog and bird sounds as dawn unfolds.
I’ve decided to share a ten-minute segment with you, so that you can enjoy the music of spring while winter still has a firm hold. Please take a few minutes to listen, with headphones or earbuds if possible. Close your eyes and allow yourself to sink into the wonder of nature. Experience a few moments of peace, a respite from the worries and concerns of your day.
p.s. I am so impressed by this soundscape, I may add it as a new title in my musicofnature.com soundscape offerings. Is it good enough? Do you think I should add it … over an hour of continuous, pristine unfolding?
