Taconic Lake Winter Symphony

I listened to another ice symphony all weekend and decided to record a bit of it. I recommend putting on your headphones and cranking up the volume for these clips.

The first clip is eight minutes long and was taken at pre-twilight on sunny Sunday, February 5, 2012. If you get impatient for some real action, slide it up to the 2:35 minute point. Toward the end of the clip you should also hear several large birds in the distance. On the bottom clip, you'll hear loud ice cracking right at the 4 second point at the beginning of this clip. Quite a difference in the two days: Saturday quite overcast and Sunday a beautiful blue sky.
