Recommended Charity: https://www.gbbo.org/

A lively spring morning at a desert oasis in southern Nevada. Here artificial ponds create a vital habitat for resident and migrating birds and other wildlife. This is the headwaters of the Amargosa River, a unique river system that is mostly underground. It also lies at the ecotone between the Great Basin Desert and the Mojave Desert. Vocalizers in the recording include Yellow-headed Blackbirds, Common Yellowthroat, White-faced Ibis, Least Bittern, Great Blue Heron, Say’s Phoebe, Great-tailed Grackle, Burro, American Coot, Red-winged Blackbird, Mourning Dove, Eurasian Collared-dove, Spotted Sandpiper, and Wilson’s Warbler.
