    I am curious as to what different people enjoy listening to from the natural world, like bird song or gurgling brooks!

    I must say the most comforting thing for me to listen to would be the silence of the wind. When you go out into a plain or field or dirt road and you close your eyes and listen...
    It's a whole other kind of magic that gets me right there.

    To me the sound of the wind is the essence of adventure, a sound connected to every fantasy novel, where anything could happen in a world you have yet begun to understand.

    There's a pretty dense woodland not far from here. If you go in autumn when all the leaves have dropped off - when it's windy the branches rub together and make this real eerie creaking noise.

    Short of that, kookaburras. We obviously don't have them here, but I went to Australia/Tasmania and they're the coolest thing. Anyone that lives there... Does the noise get annoying? It goes on for a while, so I guess it might.
