This spring add the sounds of Dyke Marsh to your playlist. Laura Sebastianelli has preserved the natural sounds around us on her blog Potomac Ecotones. Her recordings are especially useful since most recordings are accompanied by pictures of animals. They’re a wonderful educational tool to help you identify our animal neighbors. I’ve long enjoyed the song of the Carolina Wren, but I didn’t know which bird was singing as I walked by it. Now I know the sound of its call and what it looks like.
Her recordings are as diverse as the wildlife around us; it’s a treasure trove of sounds. The blog has recordings of beaver chewing, owls hooting, frogs croaking, and foxes howling. To hear those sounds and many others, check out her blog.
