- In Birds in Flight, get a whooshing collection of North American birds with the common thread of flight. Hear flocks of White-throated swifts circling wildly and Chihuahuan Ravens beating the air to slay aloft. Hear long whapping Loon takeoffs and angry ducks buzzing the mics like fighter planes. Hear the slow soaring of Bald Eagles and the almost-silent whooshes of hunting owls. Hear the frenetic fluttering of branch top dancing and doppler flybys so close I'm lucky the wind draft didn't knock over the mics.
- This library offers you an extensive collection of sounds from a unique wild sound source. This library grew out of thousands of hours of nature recordings. Tens of hours were recorded to capture each rare fluttering of these wild wings. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for listening.
