So I thought it would be fun to use this blog in part to post some of the interesting field recordings I've collected over the years. To start it off, this is a recording from Bacalar in southern Mexico. Bacalar sits on an idyllic inland lagoon, and in the middle of it is a small island shrouded in mangroves. It's earned itself the name "Island of the Birds" as it is home to somewhere around 80 species of birds. One morning a few friends and I decided to Kayak out to the island at sunrise, and we happened to capture the birds during feeding time. This beautiful cacophony is what we heard. Enjoy!
