This is a sound ambiance of a town with birds singing, distant traffic, cicadas calling, lawnmower, children playing and a little wind blowing on a summerday. This is not directly a field-recording but its made of various other recorded sounds that I mixed together in one sample. The birds and cicada species that you hear in this sample are the most common to hear in the real Southeastern US, like Mississippi or Alabama. On my nature research I have written down the animals you hear in this sample, if you are interested: Birds: "Carolina Chickadee", "Northern Cardinal", "Brown Thrasher", "House Sparrow", "American Crow", "Mourning Dove". Cicadas: "Tibicen Pruinosa", "Tibicen Linnei", "Tibicen Auletes". Enjoy!!! :D I encourage you not to use this sound in projects and sounds that maybe are going to be sold due to copyright issues that could occur by doing so.

    this is fantastic. amazing that you mixed these sounds together. it reminds me SO MUCH of a typical hot summer day in my back yard, hanging out, watching the sky. I grew up about 20 mins northwest of Boston, Ma. thank you for this.
