CD Review: Birdsong of the Northwoods
Birdsong of the Northwoods is a CD of natural sounds without music. Like the title says, it features birds that are common in the northwoods, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. It is one continuing track progressing throughout the day, featuring birds not only in the woods but by a stream, in the rain, and as a thunderstorm approaches. As it gets toward night, there are crickets, frogs, loons, and owls. This is very relaxing and great to listen to any time of day. The only improvement I would make is to make the CD several different tracks so you could easily skip to the track you would like. I think that they are thinking that it would be more natural sounding to have it all in one continuous track, but the CD is an hour long, and it would be easier to skip around with different tracks. This only cost me about $10 so I think I got a really good deal on this.
