Alcatraz Island Ambiance, San Francisco, California US

Recorded at Alcatraz Island, GGNRA, CA May 2005
The next morning the  same side of the island, very strange Dan Dugan and I spent the night in cellblock B.  You can hear a Pigeon Guillemot
at the very top of the recording, it’s the very high pitched one.  Also Western Gulls and Brant’s Cormorants (the croaky, grunty one).

Feeding on Alcatraz GGNRA, CA May 2005 Dan Dugan and I  were invited to record some of the nesting birds.  This was a superb location on the south side of the island, we were able to place the mics within 5′ of the nesting birds.  There were juvenile herons flying in and out throughout the late afternoon light.
