Singing for the rain

Recorded April 17 2005 at 20:10, after dark

Beaver Lake
Northern Oregon Coast Range

As daylight fades on a cool and moist evening, Pacific chorus frogs (Pseudocris regilla) celebrate along the marshy shore. An American robin (Turdus migratorius) chuckles a while before settling in.

Misty rain falls, and water drips from a red alder that leans over the water. A North American beaver (Castor Canadensis) speaks to another in a joyful singing voice - and a tail slaps the water.

What else do you hear?
