Program Information: Series 3 & 4

Click on a program in the right-hand column to see a description and program notes.

Recording Sources: Most of the birdsongs in this series were recorded by Chris Tenney. Recordings from CD collections that you can find in the library or purchase are identified in the program notes. Where the location of the recording is known, I've noted it.

Program Signature: The dawn chorus and canyon wren that you hear in each program's signature were recorded by Chris Tenney at the Los Padres National Forest. They were not recorded together, but I've combined them here with music.

Sound Manipulation: Birdsong slowed down using Raven Lite and/or Bias Peak. My basic tools for sound editing on the computer are Bias Deck and Bias Peak. I use SoundSoap to remove noise from recordings. Only manipulation done with other tools is mentioned in the notes for individual programs.
