Singing Lake and Dragon’s Mouth

Escape to the Yellowstone sound library, full of public domain recordings of sounds taken at the park. Enjoy the blorps and whooshing of geysers, the raucous chorus of frogs, the eerie crackling of a frozen lake, the percussive sounds of avian courtship dances.

Some more favorites:
Artist Paint Pots
Warbling Vireos

There’s also a video library, with a similar diversity of subjects.

These are great! And all really nicely recorded. I especially love the Soundscapes.

Yeah! The Soundscapes, especially the lake recordings, are really helping me to reach a meditative mindset during this snowy post-holiday stressful time. I need to dig out my good headphones for the binaural sounds.

It’s weird to hear Black Sand Basin without the ground shaking under your feet.

Wow, did not know this existed. Perhaps a musical mifian will use the sounds to create a symphony.

Alright! This is more like it!

After digging into this a bit more (also with the good headphones this time) I'm a little disappointed they don't have more raven sounds, but I'm guessing the rangers recording these would probably agree with me. Ravens have a wide variety of calls, as heard on the Cornell Bird Lab web site. Even those samples don't cover the range of sounds we heard in Yellowstone.
