I appreciate seeing the world from the slower pace of a leisurely walk. These walks are marked with random stops, to enjoy the proverbial smell of the roses, alongside other sensory experiences. On a recent stroll through Legacy Park in Malibu, I stopped often to watch – and listen – to the diverse species of wildlife residing in this man-made habitat. The birds, in particular, put on quite a show as captured in the audio clip below:

I closed my eyes to listen to the birds more attentively and could distinguish their individual calls. What were they communicating to each other? At moments, their songs reached a crescendo over the white noise of nearby Pacific Coast Highway and faded back as a plane flew low over the park. I was surprised by the sounds I captured, listening repeatedly to nature and the city in harmony.

    The overlapping beautiful songs of birds in Malibu over the constant drone of traffic makes for an interesting musical composition between nature and humans.
