Various nature recordings by Bernhard Kroeger
About 10 miles southwest of Hana, Hawaii is Kipahulu and Whispering Winds Bamboo
On a recent vacation to Maui I had hoped to make an ambient recording of the wind moving through a bamboo forest. On the early afternoon of November 21, 2010 I received permission from Rich, one of the owners of this co-op to record on their property. My wife found an area that had open clumps of black bamboo
that was creaking and clacking in strengthening gusts. I set up my home made Jecklin disc http://www.studiy.tv/?p=22
with a pair of MHK 20′s and recorded for 57 minutes when the wind died.
Here is a 7.5 minute snippet.

I reduced some of the rumble (100Hz), but otherwise left things alone. At 59 sec a bird can be heard which I could not see nor identify by voice. If you can, please let me know.
