Spring in the park is so awesome.
Just at the time we are all back biking and running and hiking, back come all the birds and other furry critters to say “hi” for the new season.
This is a few days old, but I recorded this on my Sunday a.m. (5/3) run on Stegosaurus. For those of you curious about some of the sounds from the trees you are hearing when you’re in the park, I thought this might be interesting. (Unedited 30 second clip recorded with my phone:)
Back for 2015 are:
- Black-throated blue warbler (2 sec mark)
- Black & White Warbler, aka “the squeaky-wheel-gets-the-grease bird (8 sec. mark)
- Ovenbird singing its unmistakable “teacher, teacher,teacher!” (15 sec mark) You’ll be hearing that one ALL summer long!
- Black-throated blue warbler again (17sec mark)
- Black & White Warbler again (20 sec mark)
- Black-throated blue warbler again (29 sec mark)
In the background for most of the clip are very faint Chickadee “fee-bee” songs… and my heavy breathing from just coming up the hill… sorry !
Here are some links to the birds mentioned above:
