Meadow Stream At Dawn

Artist: Kelly Rafuse
Klamath Mountains, Siskiyou County, California, USA

This soundscape was recorded at dawn beside a spring fed stream as it winds its way through a lush mountain meadow before joining the nearby North Fork of the Sacramento River. This stream is one of numerous spring fed streams that form the headwaters of the Sacramento River – the largest river in California. The meadow sits at the foot of Mount Eddy, the highest peak in the Klamath Mountains, and is surrounded by a diverse conifer forest consisting of Lodgepole Pine, Jeffrey Pine, White Fir, Red Fir, and Incense Cedar. The birds you will hear the most on this recording are active and energetic Mountain Chickadees as they flit about the branches of the nearby pine trees foraging for insects. 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.
