at the lake—

Very very good! The loon's call described as tremelo..quite unique, innovative, and so true, recalling that haunting sound.

I agree completely with the use of tremolo. So much, in so little :)

Mmm - to come to life I need to substitute a bird whose call I know. (I've got no idea WHAT a loon is but assume its a bird!)But then it does, - this is a great little 'ku

Ah - it is a bird much as I imagined (though I went for a coot in my imagination) If you want to hear its call go to this sound file
