Ruby-crowned Kinglet

Dawn Chorus / Ambience

A May morning in the boreal forest. We hear the magnificent song of the Ruby-crowned Kinglet and, in the background, a Lincoln’s Sparrow and a praticing White-throated Sparrow. Above your head, the wind softly blows in the needles of the coniferous trees and in front of you is a small lake around which live some Spring Peepers.
