AMB10 Northern Rockies: Common Loons

Regular price $39.00 USD


  • In Northern Rockies: Common Loons, get a collection of the strange and mythical calls of Common Loons. These beautiful birds have haunting calls that sing across the boreal lakes of North America. One of the greatest pleasures I've had as a field recordist was hearing their majestic wails echo across still waters. This library includes sounds of a nesting pair captured during a full week of nighttime and dawn recording in Glacier National Park, Montana. 


    Key Features:

    • Nesting pair of Common Loons recorded in Glacier National Park, Montana
    • 22 clips including Loons
    • Close, medium, and distant perspectives
    • Isolated solo nighttime calls
    • Loons mixed with full dawn choruses
    • Included Loon calls: wail, yodel, tremolo, hoots, flapping takeoffs, and tremolo call flybys
    • 4 clips of Quiet Nature recordings from the same location. These recordings have sparse wildlife and are perfect for use as nature roomtones for the Loons included in the library. 
    • Ruffed grouse "drumming" can be heard as distant bass thumps. Read more about how males create this sound by beating their wings on hollow logs – here
    • This is not a parabolic dish library of close up and isolated Loons. It is an ambience library of Common Loons within their natural habitat. 
    • Distant soothing meltwater can be heard in several of the ambiences. 


    • Named markers are included in each file to help find interesting events in an otherwise uniform waveform. 
    • Markers are included in the Soundminer and BWAV description fields starting with the prefix "Marker Text".

          Field Recording Values

          An astonishing number of natural soundscapes are disappearing. I work to preserve as many as I can. 

          Mastering Rules

          I don't "photoshop" my nature sounds and present them as natural soundscapes. If I do remove something, it's marked in the metadata. Otherwise, it's a natural soundscape! Read more – here
