Sounds to Go

Birds, Jefferson City, Missouri

I need to learn how to upload just sounds to the blog. Sometimes it's the sounds and not the visual of a place that make the story.

Like the frogs at Ureki.

Recently, I've come across some good sites to listen to animal sounds.

Xeno-Canto is:
A website dedicated to sharing bird sounds from all over the world. Whether you are a research scientist, a birder, or simply curious about a sound that you heard out your kitchen window, we invite you to listen, download, and explore the bird sound recordings in the collection. But xeno-canto is more than just a collection of recordings. It is also a collaborative project. We invite you to share your own bird recordings, help identify mystery recordings, or share your expertise in the forums. Welcome! 

Soundboard has sounds from the animal kingdom and beyond. When I listen to the mountain lion sounds, it gives me chills.

The Macauley Library the world's largest and oldest scientific archive of biodiversity audio and video recordings. Our mission is to collect and preserve recordings of each species' behavior and natural history, to facilitate the ability of others to collect and preserve such recordings, and to actively promote the use of these recordings for diverse purposes spanning scientific research, education, conservation, and the arts.

As a lagniappe, I also share with you National Geographic's easy-to-use Backyard Bird Identifier.

Marvelous sound. Just imagine that outside your house at night.

I'm imagining ... and am trying to decide if it would be a good thing or a bad thing.
