Let Nature Sing

The action of Let Nature Sing takes place within or near a woodland and a man-made pond. Most of the sounds were recorded where tall trees, then shrubs and other plants slope downwards and form a vegetation tangle next to field or water. Such dense growth attracts many birds including migrant sparrows, warblers and others. Usually, they find what they seek -- food, water and shelter.

There are background sounds from the open fields, adjacent farmyards, the woodland and the pond. Voices of other than featured species include: Eastern Phoebe, American Crows, House Sparrows, Red Squirrel, Blue Jays and Red-winged Blackbirds.

Woodland-water places become centres for local birds and resting spots for migrants on their way through. Both woodland and water absorb the sun's heat Great Horned Owlby day and give of their warmth at night to all that stay. Birds such as the Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers use the areas all year. Others like the Connecticut Warbler winter in Venezuela or Central Brazil and may pause in their flight to nesting grounds farther north.

Nesting and wintering habitats are essential for a species' survival. Essential, also, are natural areas that serve as stopping places along migration flyways. Let us help. Let Nature Sing.
