Sounds from Fields and Woods

Wildlife is an inspiring and priceless part of our environment. The bird sounds of this production focus on some of its diversity and aural charm.

The fields and the woods have water areas nearby. Birds from all three habitats add background sounds in some selections. This variety is normal for the diverse environment in which they live.

Field sounds are confined to Side A and woodland sounds to Side B. A few instances of overlapping, however, exist. This Great Horned Owl hunts over fields and woods and often hoots from an oak at the edge of a field. Meadowlarks nest in the fields, but may fly to woodland treetops for optimum viewing of their territory and beyond.

Most selections run for longer than one minute and all are highlights, some of them being: the buoyant sounds of Canada Geese in spring, the exciting sounds of Sharp-tailed Grouse in a field of meadowlarks, the rich varied songs of a robin, the melodious tones of a thrush and the happy notes of fledgling orioles.
