The second piece, “Song of the Catbird” (32:20) is a montage of various field recordings featuring song birds from around the marsh, meadow, and surrounding woodlands. Dominated by the lengthy, multi-phrased, beautiful song of the Catbird for the entire 32 minutes. The Catbird mimics many other birds and sounds, likely a territorial strategy to ward off competing species.
