City Seagulls at Dawn
Downtown Bridgeport, CT These seagulls adapted their habitat in the city one mile away from the sea. A large group of seagulls live on the roof top of the buildings in dwontown. At dawn at 6am they seem to call for their territories. Their sounds are agressive. A homeless woman sleeps undercover at outside court building. She feeds pheasants, but she doesn't like seagulls around her, so she is screaming at the seagulls. Her voice is extremely loud male voice. The city seagulls sound as stressed as she is.

Fairfield, CT katydids chorus at night In the dark summer night at 9:40pm the air seems to be thicker with katydids chorus. This year katydids came late in CT, because the claimate change. I spotted a quiet woody area but I heard airplanes passing consistantly above during the recording. The katydids chorus sounds even deeply contemplating in the dark. I can't see much in the dark, so my brain gets focused and my body gains fresh energy from the timeless drone.
