This recording documents a portion of dawn chorus on the Lower Kantishna River in Denali National Park. The clip starts at 05:45:42 on 06/15/2010. (This is very close to the solstice, and just after the peak breeding season for birds in the park.)

There are many species audibly singing - predominantly the vocal and winnowing sounds of Wilson's Snipe, but also Gray Jays, Alder Flycatchers, Swainson's Thrush, and Lincoln's Sparrow. Insects are audible flying past the microphone. The sound of water moving in the muskeg (= mossy wetland lake) near the station is also audible.

This sound was recorded by an unattended recording station (LKAR)as part of a larger soundscape survey in Denali National Park. PCB Piezotronics 377B02 > Larson Davis PRM831 preamplifier > Larson Davis 831 line-out > Roland R05 line-in.
