    Episode 66: Castle Crags Wilderness-Blustery Night at Little Castle Lake

    Episode 66: Castle Crags Wilderness-Blustery Night at Little Castle Lake

    This was recorded on a blustery night in a stand of tall Red Fir and White Fir trees near Little Castle Lake in Castle Crags Wilderness, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. I was camped out in the snow not far from where this recording was made, and I set my recording rig up to record the wind overnight. The night was very windy and I was camped closer to a standing dead tree than I should have been, so I laid awake most of the night hoping that a branch or even the whole tree wouldn't blow down on my campsite. Luckily, it didn't. And thanks to some creative use of snow, I was able to get this recording with only minimal microphone wind noise. Which means I was able to capture the sound of the wind in the trees and not the unpleasant sound of the wind hitting the microphone. If you'd like to see pictures of the area I recorded this, and how I used the snow to protect my microphone from the wind, I will be posting them on the Instagram account for the podcast.

    Bonus! Red-winged Blackbirds at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge

    Bonus! Red-winged Blackbirds at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge

    This bonus episode is composed of three recordings of Red-Winged Blackbirds I gathered at Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge near the California-Oregon border in Siskiyou County, California. This wildlife refuge is not remotely located and is popular with birders, and as such there is quite a bit of noise pollution. So instead of giving you one long recording full of passing jets, airplanes, cars, trucks, trains, and people ooh-ing and aah-ing at the abundant birds, I put this together from mostly noise pollution free segments of recordings I gathered that day. The first part is a large flock sitting in cattails lining the edge of a canal and is eight minutes long. The second part is a large flock roosting in, and moving between, willow trees and is nine minutes long. The third part is a small and dispersed gathering sitting in cattails and singing mostly individually. The segments have been faded together slightly to give you a continuous listening experience. Listen for passing Trumpeter Swans at 16m45s. I really hope you enjoy this bonus episode.

    Episode 65: Castle Crags Wilderness- Snowmelt Rain

    Episode 65: Castle Crags Wilderness- Snowmelt Rain

    This was recorded on a clear and sunny morning in a stand of Red and White Fir trees, after it had snowed the night before, in Castle Crags Wilderness, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. As the sun warmed the snow covered trees towering above, it began to melt the snow, which rained down onto the snowy forest floor.

    Episode 63: Campfire on a Cold and Breezy Winter Night

    Episode 63: Campfire on a Cold and Breezy Winter Night

    This was recorded at a remote campsite near the Pacific Crest Trail in densely forested mountains in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Shasta County California. It was a cold, clear, moonlit night with a steady breeze blowing through the trees. I set up the microphone beside the fire to record late at night after the air traffic had died down, and after I went to sleep nearby, so you may hear the sound of a sleeping bag rustling here and there.

Surprised by the awesomeness

I was just looking for some white noise. I was amazed by how calming I find these recordings. Love the random hikers-that made my day.
