This recording was gathered on a brisk autumn day in the Trinity Mountains beside Bear Creek in Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Trinity County, California. Light wind blows steadily through the trees above as the creek trickles by. Listen for the sound of Dark Eyed Juncos fluttering around in the nearby trees about ten minutes into the recording.
I made a previous attempt at gathering a recording in this area a few days before this, but it is was a holiday weekend during hunting season and the sound of distant gunshots could be heard on the recording I made that day. So I returned to the area on a weekday and was fortunate to obtain this recording which is free from the unpleasant, if not disturbing, sound of gunfire.
