This was recorded early on a clear and warm spring morning at Bigelow Meadow in Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. A light and steady breeze blew across the willow thickets and a few nearby pine trees which call the meadow home, with the soft roar of the McCloud River, running high with an abundance of snowmelt, heard in the distance.
The recording starts in predawn darkness a little after three in the morning, towards the end of the nightly frog chorus. Even at that very early hour birds are beginning to sing. As the frog chorus slowly subsides, the dawn chorus slowly begins. You will hear an abundance of birds on this recording, which include Black-headed Grosbeaks, Yellow Warblers, MacGillivray's Warblers, Western Wood-pewees, Song Sparrows, Canada Geese, Great Horned Owls, and many more.
