Sounds of Nature

The Macaulay Library, Cornell Lab of Ornithology has made available all its digital recordings of the natural world dating back to 1929 available and accessible to all for free! What a fantastic endeavor! And the willingness to make it open access to all is truly wonderful! Thanks Cornell!
Here is a sample of one of the recordings from the sound library. As per the title it is a "dawn chorus in tropical Queensland, Australia". Absolutely delightful!

Obsessive Loop

Some days you become this soapy, corny South Indian, who gets hooked on A.R Rahman and Vairamuthu and listens to their creation on an obsessive loop!
