California Grassland Morning

Artist: Seth Swaaley
California, USA

Just after dawn, the summer morning comes alive near an abandoned house and barn in the hills of The Carrizo Plain in California’s Central Valley. In this wide expanse of Grassland, many of the wildlife find a home among the few trees and old structures that can be found down old dirt roads. It’s an amazing place where time slows down a bit, and the wonderful elements of nature can be found all around.

The steady rhythm of the Mourning Doves can be heard throughout as they’re joined by Coyotes, Eurasian Collared-Doves, House Finches, Western Kingbirds, Cassin’s Kingbird, and Crows. is a completely free streaming service of 800+ 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.
