Seven Super Sounds From Our Newly Digitized ArchiveNifty!
Our Macaulay Library is the world’s largest public archive for natural sounds and video. After 12 years of hard work, the library recently finished digitizing its entire archive of tapes—150,000 clips and 7,513 hours of running time are now up online. To celebrate, we've put together a small sampler of sounds we love, including a Song Sparrow from the Jazz Age, a bird's impression of a UFO landing, and everyone's favorite wailing waterbird, among others. Read the story and hear the sounds.
