Mojave, An American Soundscape

Southern Mojave Desert, California,

United States

Recordist: Listening Earth
Location: Southern Mojave Desert, California, United States
Habitat: Scrubland desert
Notes: It is the still moments before dawn in the Mojave desert. The first birds begin calling in the dark, their voices drifting over the open plains. From rocky slopes come the echoes of a Coyote pack in full cry, while a pair of Great Horned Owls call as they patrol their territory. As the dawn chorus grows, we hear a variety of western desert birdsong; Sparrows, Cactus Wrens, Flycatchers and Thrashers. A community of Gambel’s Quail call prominently as they socialise, and a tiny Hummingbird buzzes our ear. More info
