This interactive listening station is powered by the wind and sun.
Participants standing under the sound dome will hear high fidelity bird song from the Western Finches frequenting the site.
“In the 21st century, we lead extraordinarily busy lives in densely populated areas with high levels of traffic noise,” says Taylor. “We tend to not hear the wind in the trees or the bird song coming from our feathered friends high up in the branches. Bird Song Listening Station helps remind us of sounds which are ever present in the natural world, but often unnoticed.”
