Soundscapes For Birders Podcast
Can’t get outside? Then bring the sounds of birds inside with the free Soundscapes for Birders podcast!
Kevin J Colver has created this superb free podcast. The high quality of the podcast comes from years of experience recording bird songs.
From Kevin’s website:
Since 1989, I have been recording the songs of birds in nature’s wild places. With an emphasis on birding by ear, my recordings have concentrated on bird song and calls throughout the western United States. These recordings have been shared with the public in my Songbirds series of CDs which introduce the birds of major western national parks. I was then fortunate to assemble the work of many generous recordists in the comprehensive reference work “Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs: Western Region.” Since that time my recording activities have expanded to include the audio documentation of wild and threatened soundscapes from the Rio Grande in Texas to the ANWR in Alaska.
To get an idea of the quality of these podcasts, listen to one of the latest episodes that was recorded at the Muddy Brook Wildlife Management Area in Massachusetts on Kevin’s website or in iTunes. So relaxing!
Kevin’s description of the Muddy Brook podcast:
A breezy dawn in this northeastern woodland is filled with the songs and calls of Wood Thrush, Magnolia Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Spring Peeper, Red-winged Blackbird, Plain Titmouse, Scarlet Tanager, Northern Cardinal, Dark-eyed Junco, Black-capped Chickadee, American Redstart, Blue Jay, American Crow, Baltimore Oriole, and American Goldfinch.
