Hear haunting Sika deer bugles and curious Grizzlys energetically sniffing my microphones. Hear antiphonal gobbles of dueling turkeys and sharp ribbits singing across still water. Hear electric insects arcing with energy and angst-ridden vocals of lonely coyotes. Hear hawks circling above their clifftop nest and astonishingly dense melodies of Swainson's thrushes.
