An early morning chorus starring the American Robin

by John Hartog



June 20, 2005 5:02-6:32 a.m.
Murderer's Creek, Grant County, Oregon

With a mountain stream peacefully gurgling through a narrow meadow, edged by forest, a quiet prelude of bird chorus introduces the robin who flutters in and boldly carols his song.

This album was recorded in high-quality digital stereo with specialized soundscape microphones.

Excepting some mooing from distant cattle, extra care was taken to present periods of time with minimal human-caused noise.

Track 1: 5:03-5:35 a.m. Prelude, then American Robin
Track 2: 5:47-5:52 a.m. Northern flickers drumming
Track 3: 5:57-6:07 a.m. Robins and flickers continue
Track 4. 6:28-6:32 a.m. Chickadee epilogue

Total album length 51:29


released February 15, 2012
