    @Chad H Clifford: Hi Chad: I don't think these little guys reach quite as far as you - at least, not this specific "brood". They're on the eastern US, from North Carolina to northern New York.

    @Marco Pesente: Toward the lake... the Moose arrived from the left, and walked behind the mic before re-entering the water and splashing away to the right.

    THUNDERCLAP HENARDD 11h26m28s4aug2012
    on September 20, 2012 20:13

    Looking at a spectrogram of this, it appears the lightning struck 30 or so metres from where you were recording. There's a small blip in the recording just before the main blast of sound, which I interpret to be the electrical interference from the lightning. The blast appeared just under 1/10 of a second after that, which works out to be around 30 metres. So yes, definitely very close!

    Sorry to hear your computer suffered the consequences :-(

    Excellent! As Mark said, they sound like musical instruments. Here (northeastern US) we get Bullfrogs - the basso profundo of the amphibian world :-)

    American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbianus)
    on August 06, 2012 18:39

    I noticed something similar here in the Hudson Valley (New York) this year. As the season progressed, the bullfrogs seemed to become hoarse - but I suppose that isn't altogether surprising!

    @StowfordNature: There are several species of thrush here in the US that use their double voice boxes to create haunting, flute-like calls. I could listen to them all day long.

    Nice. I think I'm going to head over to my local pond tonight to record more of the bullfrogs that are hanging out there.

    I really like my SSM :-)

    Woodcocks and Spring Peepers at 1.21
    on July 03, 2012 18:20

    The 'peent' of the Woodcock covers a very wide spectrum, and those from here to the end appear to have been somewhat distorted by Soundcloud's transcoding process.

    Thunder storm
    on July 02, 2012 16:38

    @Dan Dugan: Hi Dan - it wasn't very heavy hail, and just for a minute or two, but if you listen beginning at around 6:50 you can hear some 'dinging' - that's the hail hitting a bird feeder (I think). The hail here was pea-sized; a few miles further east it was golf ball-sized and did some damage.

    A woodland chorus with Wood Thrush

    Hmmm... I'm pretty sure that's a Wood Thrush, not a Hermit Thrush. Nice recording, though - and not too far from where I live.
