In Northern Rockies 1: Common Loons, get a collection of the strange and mythical calls of Common Loons. These beautiful birds have haunting calls that sing across the boreal lakes of North America. One of the greatest pleasures I’ve had as a field recordist was hearing their majestic wails echo across still waters. This library includes sounds of a nesting pair captured during a full week of nighttime and dawn recording in Glacier National Park, Montana.

• Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause. I view it as an “artist royalty” for the planet!
• Carbon offset credits were purchased for the Northern Rockies Series. Field Recording travel for this library was carbon neutral!

• Nesting pair of Common Loons recorded in Glacier National Park, Montana
• 22 clips including Loons
• Close, medium, and distant perspectives
• Isolated solo nighttime calls
• Loons mixed with full dawn choruses
• Included Loon calls: wail, yodel, tremolo, hoots, flapping takeoffs, and tremolo call flybys
• 4 clips of Quiet Nature recordings from the same location. These recordings have sparse wildlife and are perfect for use as nature roomtones for the Loons included in the library.
• Ruffed Grouse “Drumming” can be heard in several recordings in this library as distant bass thumps. Read more about how males create this sound by beating their wings while sitting on hollow logs – here.
• Other included wildlife: Swainson’s ThrushesWilson’s SnipesRed-winged BlackbirdsRuby-crowned Kinglets, Beaver tail slaps, angry Chipmunks, and bats up to 90 kHz.
• All tracks have an integrated loudness of approximately -35 LUFS.
• This is NOT a parabolic dish library of close up and isolated Loons. It is an ambience library of Common Loons within their natural habitat.
• *Note – I self-identified all birds using several iOS apps and bird identification websites, so I cannot guarantee 100% accuracy in species identification.


• Named markers are included in each file to help find interesting events in an otherwise uniform waveform. Starting in Soundminer 4.5Pro_v271 you can now read text markers from within Soundminer!
• Marker text included in the Soundminer description and BWAV description fields.
