The Eastern Meadowlark is typically found at agricultural sites throughout southern Ontario, but can sometimes be found at large open parkland in urban areas.
In this soundscape you'll hear both the song and "rattle" call of the Eastern Meadowlark. In the background you'll hear various species such as Red-winged Blackbird, Savannah Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Cedar Waxwing, Common Grackle, Northern Flicker, Chipping Sparrow, American Goldfinch, Yellow Warbler, an unknown woodpecker species pecking away at a tree, and a brief cameo by the elusive Orchard Oriole.
Recorded on June 23, 2019 at the Elam Martin Farmstead in RIM Park, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada with an iPhone 6S and Edutige EIM-001 microphone.
