Stroll Down an Arroyo

Written by Bob Sundstrom

That is BirdNote.
[Greater Roadrunner song]
Have you ever ever heard a Roadrunner sing? That’s the maker of this cooing sound.
[Greater Roadrunner song]
Wish to hear extra sounds of the desert Southwest? [Someone walking along a sandy path] Come alongside, as we stroll alongside an arroyo, a dry, sandy creek mattress. Arroyo means “stream” in Spanish. With mesquite, yucca, and cactus alongside their edges, arroyos within the Southwest fill with water only some occasions a yr, principally in the course of the heavy rains of late summer season.
Regardless of the arroyo’s lack of water in the intervening time, there’s a exceptional range of wildlife right here. [Northern Beardless Tyrannulet song] That’s a Northern Beardless Tyrannulet singing, a tiny flycatcher with a really distinctive voice. [Northern Beardless Tyrannulet song] And there’s a Pyrrhuloxia singing from atop a yucca. [Pyrrhuloxia song] The Pyrrhuloxia appears rather a lot like a cardinal, besides it’s feathered in silvery grey, with magenta highlights. [Pyrrhuloxia song]
Birds listed below are most energetic within the morning, besides these which are nighttime specialists. [Call of Lesser Nighthawk] Simply after sundown, we’d hear the drawn-out trill of a Lesser Nighthawk. [Lesser Nighthawk] And a cousin of the nighthawk, a Buff-collared Nightjar, would possibly start to name [Buff-collared Nightjar calls].
 The sounds of life in an arroyo are magical, day and night time.
