April Bird Serenade

In my recent theme of early morning stupid o’clockness  (but in a change to the the recent visual media),  here’s a stupid o’clockish audio recording I made this morning at, well, stupid o’clock.   :p

My original intention was to get some tree leaves rustling, and the wind conditions were absolutely perfect!   As soon as I looked out the window I could see trees swaying gently in a breeze with gusts strong enough to make a good sound.   So I grabbed my gear and went out to see what I could get.

I left kvetch snoring away quietly to himself, all comfy-like under the duvet.   :)

As so often happens with audio recording, my original intentions and the ultimate result ended up a bit of a mismatch.   But sometimes original intentions gone kablooey can come with the wonderful and unexpected.   :)

    The Good News  –  Recording-leaves-rustling wind conditions were perfect!
    The Bad News  –  Yammering birds made tree leaves effort a bit of a bust.  
    The Other Good News  –  At 05:48 a bird happily perched in my tree for a short while and serenaded me until some seagulls chased it away.

The audio is 1 minute 41 seconds long, and is perfectly work safe.   Enjoy!
