Crickets and a train, oh my!

Don't ask me how I find these but I will send you in the right direction to listen to them from time to time. I love listening to ambient field recordings, found sounds from the environment that surrounds us. I have managed to hit pay dirt with a couple of sites. First up is The Quiet American, enthusiasts from around the world send in their own recordings and post them here under the heading 'One minute Vacations'. There is an audio clip of a steam train moving through the Australian outback, find it here, dated November 5th, 2007. I advise you to listen with headphones, you only get a third of the intended audio without them. There is a PayPal donate button at the Quiet American website if you wish to contribute. Enjoy!
