Spring Chorus and funny words

As I was heading out with my camera - at night - and DH asked where I was going. I waved my camera at him. "Pictures at night?" he asked. Me (tired from a day at work and a gym session) couldn't remember the word for "video" so I said "Going out to take listening pictures". I like that image.

So here is my video for tonight, the ever wonderful New England spring chorus.

And yes - this is taken in front of my house. No streetlights. Pitch black

waiting.

Just asking your permission to make a cd of sound to 'sing' me to sleep!

Thats so cool. I remember before moving here in OR that I used to have a tape of birds chirping in trees and fogs chrocking at night as I never heard them much in CA where we lived. I craved that sound. Now we hear it all the time and I feel so blessed every day.

By the way..How do you get YOUR videos on here. Suki goes to YOU TUBE. Do You? I have some old videos and want to do some new ones if I could figure out how to put them on with out a hassle.

okay, so tonight i'll leave the lights off, step outside and see what i hear. no, that can't be right--not SEE what i hear--hear what i hear. but i like see what i hear better.

oh well, who gives a you-know-what. i'll go out in the dark and i will think of you up the street, mim.

Sounds delicious! I love night sounds.

Thanks all - I love the spring peepers and if anyone wants to record them - just go right ahead.

The way I do the upload of the video is that there is a little "video" upload thingy next to the picture of the picture upload (did you follow that) when you are posting a new post. I have the video on my desktop and just upload from there. It takes awhile tho!

Go outside tonight and see what you can hear.

Oh, they are here now too...I love laying in bed listening to them...then it almost gets too much and I think about shutting the window...but somehow drift off to sleep, lol

Lynn said...

Pretty sounds...loved hearing this and what a very very clever idea!
A listening video indeed.
