19/04/18. Anahuac.

This recording was made at dawn at the first layby on the narrow road that goes around Shoveler Pond.

Great-tailed grackle males were parading about on the road in small groups; showing off to the females, I expect.   Also searching for mates, the male alligators were making their own low, booming, groaning sounds.   Beautiful red-winged blackbirds (see picture above) were singing in the reeds.  Birds were flying all around.


It felt like witnessing the beginning of life on earth.
