A very typical sound-scape of an open field, bordered by the large Shawnee National Forest. A warm day in June, with a lot of birds, and, if you listen to the higher frequencies, in the background always there, are the ever-present insects. Recorded in June 2009 around 11:00 in the morning. Tempurature was about 78 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. This is also interesting in that it shows how, early in the summer, the bird vocalizations often are louder than the insects, BUT, as the summer goes on, this is reversed.. listen to my insect recording from July and you'll see/hear what I mean.
Equipment used: Zoom H4N recorder, using the internal built-in microphones.
