Bird and Frog Chorus at First Light

Olympic Peninsula, USA

Clear cuts such as the one where this recording was made can evoke mixed feelings. Their appearance will at first seem like scars on the forest, yet when I want to see or hear animals in Western Washington, these are the first places I look. As new growth settles in these clear cuts, wildlife follows in abundance. Here I not only recorded a wide number of birds and the lone pacific chorus frog who decided to join in, but I also found several bedding areas for elk. is a completely free streaming service of 900+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
