Growing up I remember the loud and eerie night time cries of the loon, especially in lake country in Minnesota.

While a recorded sound is only faintly indicative of the impact of the real thing out in the woods at night, you can check it out here.

Learn about loons and watch one nesting here:

“The tinkling of Krsna’s ankle bells surpasses the songs of even the swan and crane, and the sound of His bangles puts the singing of the cataka bird to shame. Having allowed these sounds to enter the ears even once, one cannot tolerate hearing anything else.”
