Morning has broken, like the first morning, blackbird has spoken like the first bird! Here we can praise for their singing. There is nothing like a spring morning filled with the sounds of the dawn chorus. Here we have red-winged blackbirds with pacific chorus frogs, varied thrush and winter wrens filling the morning air.
This section was taken from a much longer take condensed down to around 9 minutes. I include all the metadata info as it happened in realtime to give you a feeling how the morning panned out.
