My grandmother is aware I’ve recently gotten into birding and sent me this link to a webpage with an illustration of song birds and when you click on each bird their individual songs will play. It’s well made and I recommend taking a look! It was posted by the Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources, but I’m wondering if there may similar compilations of song birds and their calls specific to other areas? I’d love to see one for Florida where I live now.
But when I clicked on the Black-capped Chickadee and listened to its call, I distinctly remembered hearing that same vocalization when I was growing up in upstate New York. As a child I thought that its fee-bee call sounded similar to the squeaking of my swing-set. It was so lovely to hear it now and remember my time growing up near the woods and nature.
Does anyone else have stories of nostalgia when hearing or seeing organisms today?
