Into the Old-growth Forest

Recordist: Lars Edenius
Umeå, Sweden
Recommended charity: Skydda Skogen


A long, cold and snowy winter is finally coming to an end. Just after dawn during a nocturnal unattended sound recording in an old forest. Black grouse is on the leks, and the voices of overflying Whooper swans can be heard. Chaffinches are migrating, and the local Willow tits have begun singing. Black and Great Spotted woodpeckers are drumming, but Ravens steal the show acoustically. It feels good to be alive.
