            • Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause. I view it as an "artist royalty" for the planet!

            Key Features:

            • This library is filled with the "Active Nature" sounds of desert mornings. 
            • Swainson’s Hawks – a male and female recorded near their nest in a 200-foot cliff. Recordings are from below the nest and include close, distant, circling, diving, and soaring perspectives.
            • White-throated Swifts – flocks of small barn swallow-like birds circling, darting, and whooshing in front of a desert cliff. 
            • Other birds included: Canyon Wrens, Bewick’s Wrens, Montezuma Quail, White-winged Doves, Western Screech-Owls, Aoudad SheepRufous-crowned SparrowsEastern Meadowlarks, and many more labeled as “songbirds” if not identified by species. 
            • Tracks starting with the filename "Quiet Desert" have low wildlife activity and are perfect “natural roomtones” to use as the foundation of a designed environment. If you need more "Quiet Nature" tracks check out High Desert Ambiences 3: Quiet Nature
            • All tracks normalized between -10 and -20 dBFS. Most tracks have an integrated loudness between -25 and -45 LUFS. 
            • Most files are 3-6 minutes in length
            • Named markers included in each file to help find interesting events in an otherwise uniform waveform. Starting in Soundminer 4.5Pro_v252 you can now read text markers from within Soundminer!

            • Marker text included in the Soundminer Description and BWAV description fields.
            • Recording Location - Davis Mountains, Texas 
            • *Note – Birds were self-identified using several iOS apps and bird identification websites, so I cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of species identification.
