Tsukutsukuboshi cicadas and birds in Hojo Garden of Chion-in temple, one of the most important sacred sites of the Jodo (Pure Land) sect of Buddhism, Kyoto, Japan.
You're right!This recording was made on the 16th of August 2009.
Wow, quick response.I'm a Japanese.The scientific name of this kind of cicada is "Meimuna opalifera".But usually we call them "Tsukutsukuboshi", because they sing "tsukutsuku-boshi, tsukutsuku-boshi, tsukutsuku...".They appear only in late summer, so I guess you recorded this sound in August or September.Thank you for your great recording.Forgive my rough broken English.
Thanks for your clarification.
No, it's not a bird.It's a Tsukutsukuboshi cicada.
