Songbirding

By Rob Porter

Immerse yourself in birdsong in this relaxed pace acoustic exploration of natural spaces in mid-western and southern Ontario. Whether you're an emerging or veteran birder looking to test and build upon your birdsong identification skills or someone who appreciates the natural world, this unique series will bring you as close as you can get to birding in the field without going anywhere. Season 1, "The Bruce Peninsula" was recorded in July of 2019, in the peak of songbird breeding season. Season 2, "Midsummer" was recorded in July and August of 2019, in southern Ontario. Season 3, "Spring of Solitude" was recorded in spring of 2020, in southern Ontario. For those with high-frequency hearing loss, please search for "Songbirding Under 5kHz" The Bruce Peninsula (also known as the Saugeen Peninsula) is the traditional territory of the Haudensaunee (Iroquois), Ojibway/Chippewa and Anishnabek. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties, with the exception of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation which is unceded territory. Credits Recorded, engineered, narrated and created by Rob Porter.
