  • Evening grosbeaks at Prosser Reservoir

    This flock of evening grosbeaks was recorded on Sunday morning Oct. 5, 2008 at Prosser Reservoir east of Truckee, California.  Sunny morning after two days of rain, and a cool 40 degrees.  The birds were flying between treetops and were very active.  At 51 seconds many of them take off in a great whir of wings and move on.

    equipment: Sound Devices 722, Telinga dish, twin science microphone

    cast of characters: evening grosbeaks, mountain quail, Steller’s jay, mountain chickadee, Brewer’s blackbird

    Not long after I started recording this flock the apparently obligatory EXPLETIVE motorcycles started arriving as they do most any place one tries to record.  It was 0845 on a beautiful Sunday morning.  Clueless bunch, for whom nature only exists to roar through, making as much noise as possible.  This is what it sounds like.
