In the field: More Hummingbirds

Palomar Mountain, California has a lot of hummingbirds. My friends’s place on South Grade has these magnificent views of the valley and Mexico in the far distance. To the west, you can see Oceanside on the right days. At the back of the house there’s a feeder that hangs off this huge tree at the edge of the deck. Two feisty hummingbirds live here.

Here is a slow motion iPhone video of the hummingbirds with original music/sound design. I used granular synthesis to suggest the flapping of wings.
