Western Meadowlark

Meadowlark Music
And Other Nature Sounds

Spring is a time of motion, of sap moving, buds swelling, and birds and frogs calling. The winds, too, do not stay still -- nor dawn, nor dusk. Flock after flock of returning migrants add to the action. Each species in time yields its surge to the sounds.

Recordings are from a variety of habitats: white poplar / bur oak forest remnant, tree-ringed slough, dugout (water reservoir), spruce windbreak, farm buildings, garden and lawn. Outside this area fields of hay and grain provide another habitat.

Western MeadowlarkWestern meadowlarks visit the dugout daily. They arrive from their chosen sites to a favored perch. Here they sing with melodious voices, then fly off, chase another, or drop down to the water's edge. This selection presents twelve different meadowlark songs, the songs that sparked the creation of Meadowlark Music.
