This recording was made in the path of totality of the August 21st 2017 eclipse, in the woods surrounding Devil's Kitchen Lake in southern Illinois. It's a stereo extract from a longer, 88 minute B format recording.

The purpose of making the recording was to see how the eclipse affected the sounds produced by insects and birds.

In this extract, totality occurs exactly 10:00 minutes in; and ends at exactly 12:38. This mirrors the time totality occurred at Devil's Kitchen Lake: from 1:20:27pm to 1:23:05pm Central Time.

Mic: Core Sound Tetramic
Recorder: Zoom F8
