Fox sparrow and White crowned sparrows in background. Rain and wind in the willows noise.
Small island in the middle of the Yukon. spacious medium sized willows (<15' tall, <2" diameter) with horsetail understory. I was walking through the willows trying to record fox sparrow songs when I suddenly flushed 7 or 8 grouse chicks who rapidly found hiding places. Then the mom burst out and proceeded to vocalize and strut within 10 feet of me for this whole recording until I felt guilty keeping her from her chicks and moved on. Rain squalls with wind alternating with calm periods of sun. About 70 F. 148 ft elevation.
