The exciting thing about recording and cataloging natural sounds is how you get nice, unexpected surprises.
I was up early recently one spring day and did not have any real plans to record, until I stepped outside with my coffee to see what the weather was like and was nicely surprised with the light, steady spring rain that was falling in my yard; during the whole time this energetic Carolina Wren kept on singing through the rain. I rain, got my recorder and recorded a full hour of this peaceful pattering. You hear the drops hitting the concrete patio, the shingled overhang and a plastic chair.
