Spring at Walden

Listen to the dawn chorus at Walden Pond: hear all the morning song birds welcome the sunrise, the geese landing on the pond during their migration north, the squirrels in the leaves, the wind waving over the tops of branches, and the wings of a blue jay flying over the path. Notice the difference between winter and spring, how Walden comes alive after the snow thaws.

The Pond in Winter

You may wish to watch the video with your eyes open, or occasionally close your eyes and let your ears do the work. Immerse yourself in the quiet winter at Walden Pond. Listen for bird songs competing with neighboring traffic, leaves rustling in the wind, the distant voices of hikers on the trails, and, my favorite, at the end: the sound of a blue jay singing and flying up into the branches of a tree.

Coming Soon: Summer
