How come no comments for this one? I like it a lot. My only quibble would be that the mockingbird needs to be piped down sometimes as it is not the drone. I find these birds terribly irritating and obnoxious in their behavior and don’t really think that they deserve a place in the arts until they can be better behaved in their natural environment :-).

Seriously, though, nice work. A little more variation in some of the levels would have made it a bit more lively without losing it’s ambient qualities. Still a really neat composition.

Lately I have gone field-recording crazy, which is all well and good, but probably just a phase.

Perhaps it is the dark ambient in my otherwise sunny disposition that finds these rowdy birds ideal song companions.

I think that this one could have varied both levels and tempo to get a more full, rounded sound. Thanks for the ideas!
