Frogs and Wilsons Snip

Colville National Forest, USA

To me these sound like Pacific Chorus Frogs, and from what I’ve been able to research this is one of the species found in Colville National Forest. I am more confident however in ID’ing the winnowing of Wilson Snipe in this recording. At the time I recorded it I was unaware of this behavior, or that snipe are to be found in the area. This sound eerily swirls around and moves around in the stereo field in such a way that it was a little unsettling when I didn’t know what it was. 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.
