This wood thrush was recorded around 7:30 in the morning in heavy woods in deep southern Illinois. Unlike my earlier posting of the wood thrush singing at dusk, this morning recording has the wood thrush singing with lots of company, although he clearly rises above his neighbors. 17 seconds into the recording you hear the drumming of a woodpecker, and at one-minute 20 seconds into the recording you hear the distinctive-lonely sounding call of the huge Pileated Woodpecker. Recording made with good-quality stereo microphones so use headphones to get a wonderful experience.

    Thanks keweldog....glad you like the recording. The recorder that I used in the Zoom H4N and the microphones were a pair of Samson C02 model stereo microphones.
