On my way to and from work I ride my bike through one of Malmös bigger parks called Pildammsparken. On my way home I’ve noticed for several nights now that large numbers of jackdaws and crows gather there to do whatever they do, and when doing whatever they do they make a lot of noise. So today I brought my light setup with me and walked into the park to record them.

Please use headphones when listening to get the most out of this quasi-binaural recording.

The popping noises you hear is the bird droppings landing on the leaves around me. Somehow they didn’t manage to hit me.

Geek note: Soundman OKM-II Klassik -> Sony PCM-D50 (low cut filter set to 75Hz to filter away some of the surrounding traffic)
