Relax to the joyful sounds of winter birds in the Boreal Forest. As the rising sun filters through the trees, a medley of birdsong fills the air from a large flock of redpolls. A continuous twitter, trill and chirp envelops the area, as the flock slowly moves through the treetops. An incredibly intricate audio weave emerges as the tiny birds "leap-frog" around each other, singing in trills, light chirps and single light ascending whistles.
Other birds occasionally join in, contrasting with the flock. A single blue jay sings with a strong "cheeer... cheeer..." and a woodpecker drills a few times in the distance. Further into the recording a nuthatch's faint nasal "waa,waa,waa..." repeats, and a raven makes a noise-like "kerplunk" and a "Awk, Awk, Awk" sound. As the sun rises, the redpoll flock slowly gives way to evening grosbeaks who call with their single decisive "Chirp!". Every individual contributes their part to form a rich evolving intricate tapestry of natural sound.
