Dawn With the Moon

Artist: Melissa Pons
Alentejo, Portugal

It’s a very energizing early morning in the countryside.

The steam from the lake is very visible and the moon is still up against a light pink sky. It’s one of my first times here and I am in wonder about the variety of bird species and fish I hear and see.


Main species in this recording: Common Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) Common Crane (Grus grus), Common Quail (Coturnix coturnix), Golden Oriole (Oriolus oriolus), Cuckoo (Cuculidae), Eurasian Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto), House-Martin (Delichon urbicum), Corn Bunting (Emberiza calandra). 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.
