Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky
June 1, 8:41 a.m.
Sunrise at 6:23 a.m.
Nine sharp PEET-sah songs from an Acadian flycatcher. He's in daytime mode, singing at a leisurely pace of about five songs per minute.
On occasion throughout the night, as if he's restless for the dawn, this song also explodes from his night roost.
Ovenbird (8 songs throughout), blue-gray gnatcatcher, tufted titmouse, purple martin, red-bellied woodpecker. Some rain dripping from the trees.
