Very cool find. Thanks for sharing.

I'm with havalotta, I'll have to check them out later...it might be nice to listen to late at night when I'm unwinding and thinking about slumber.

Same here. It's after 11pm and I want to look at other threads. I am listening to the night sounds with my baby monitor right now. I love all the sounds of nature.

When it gets really hot outside, the insects turn of the volume. Was extremely loud last night.

It's getting louder here too. I am hearing crickets now. I love it when it rains. It makes the frogs talk. It's been a dry summer here. I like it when it rains. I think all the critters like it too. They sing more.

My evenings are full of seagull and goose chatter. It'a a rare eve when you don't hear either or both species.
Wonder what it is that silences them every so often...

Springtime. LOTS and lots of toads serenading one another. And when it's windy, every now and then a wave leaps forth and smacks at the shore. Then there's the train. You can hear it for miles and miles and miles and miles. It's not a natural sound, but I find it soothing.

That's neat havalotta. What kind of geese do you have?
