Western Capercaillie Makes Vocalizations in Early Spring Forest

Alam-Pedja Nature Reserve, Estonia

Early morning. I went to see if it would be possible to record the sounds of moor frogs in a place where I know they are. I didn’t see any frogs, but I did meet a capercaillie, a species that is protected in Estonia. I tied the microphones to a tree and left to record. 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.
