Lot's of bird song in the groves recently. My favorite is the varied thrush, which I've been hearing more and more the last couple of weeks. They seem to be very vocal in the morning and evenings. Then, as if on cue, they all stop singing at once.
I tried to capture a couple samples of the various tones of the thrush's song last night in Humboldt Redwoods State Park. If I ever find myself lying on a deathbed somewhere, I'd like to hear this sound from time to time. Background noise is most likely the Eel River, as well as highway 101.
