A Peaceful, droning, relaxing Summer soundscape of the Midwestern forest. For starters, in the background you hear a river of wind steadily swirling around the Oaks, and The Maples and the Sycamore trees. A blessed northeast wind-friend. The insects take over, and on top of that, a single, solitary bird, I think a Flycatcher, softly calls his one-note. Even though this is the time of year that the visitors, those beautiful neo-tropical migrants, fill the woods, after several months of raising of raising a family, they are quiet, resting now...letting the insects signify the passage of time and the slow march to Autumn. In about 6 weeks from now, most of our visitors will have left. . .back down south, their job of raising the next crop of insect-eaters done...and the woods, the forest, the nearly-dry creekbed will be packing it in.

Recording done on Saturday July 29th, 2017 at 11:30AM in the forest near a creek with Sound Devices 702 and a Rode NTG-2 shotgun microphone pointed straight up into the trees.
