Star Valley in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve near rural LaFarge Wisconsin lies almost directly in a major North American migratory flyway. Every spring, uncountable thousands of birds visit this area returning from their wintering grounds to the south.

This recording captures a glorious dawn chorus from the edge of a marsh, just paces from the river and surrounding woodland. After a chilly night, the air is cold and crisp, the tops of the reeds frosted. A dizzying array of species greet the morning.

A version of this recording is available on "Star Valley" from Fieldpost Recordings
