    Ok we have discussed colors where we live so now how about sounds. What sounds do you hear while laying in your bed at night? Up hear if I go to bed before the sun hits the ground I am serenaded by the song birds and in particular the Robin. As it gets dusker out the geese on the lake 3/4 of a mile East get to talking about their day. Then a greater horned owl or three will start wondering "WHOOOOOOO" will get the next mouse. After which the screech owls move in and feed their young amongst the screeching. The young coyotes are starting to practice singing which of course gets the neighbors dog[2 miles away] to barking back. In the distance a calf will call to his mom looking for a bedtime snack. The frogs have already quit croaking but you can hear the night birds whizzing through the air after the steady "hummmmmmmmmmmmm" of insects. Once in a spell some deaf mother on a harley goes down the highway 3 miles away. Occasionally a jet flys overhead to wreck the sounds of nature but not often. Some nights it's so quiet you can hear the stars twinkling just like on a quiet day you can hear a crop growing. What have you for sounds?

    Yeah they can do that. My son and I sleep in a tent for most of the summer just to enjoy the sounds and it is much cooler than a house. Coyotes barking 30 feet from you is a sound few get to enjoy. I've had folks show up who spent their entire lives in a city who couldn't sleep due to it being so quiet they could hear evil things like a mouse scurrying.

    In my neighborhood it birds singing, kids playing, cars, and the occasional motorcycle and / or truck going by. Now if I head into the city it all sorts of noise. This song has the city noises down bang.

    Hot town, summer in the city
    Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty
    Been down, isn't it a pity
    Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
    All around, people looking half dead
    Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
    But at night it's a different world
    Go out and find a girl
    Come-on come-on and dance all night
    Despite the heat it'll be alright
    And babe, don't you know it's a pity
    the days can't be like the nights
    In the summer, in the city
    In the summer, in the city

    Cool town, evening in the city
    Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
    Cool cat, looking for a kitty
    Gonna look in every corner of the city
    Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
    Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop
    But at night it's a different world
    Go out and find a girl
    Come-on come-on and dance all night
    Despite the heat it'll be alright
    And babe, don't you know it's a pity
    the days can't be like the nights
    In the summer, in the city
    In the summer, in the city

    Hot town, summer in the city

    I absolutely detest cities because of their noise, smell and unfriendliness. I could never figure out how you could get that many people together who are afraid to talk to anyone. Out here if you stop on the road the next vehicle stops and then it can become a party. I've listened to moles digging their tunnels and in a city that would be tough.

    first off...when i sleep in the house i have a cocoon of insulation 3' in the roof and 1' in the walls so the only sound that penetrates the bedroom has to come through the tripple pane window glass and cellular shades.......so ......even thunderstorms and hail make no sound unless they shake the building or beat on the glass...we have our cell phones and weather alert radios so if a storm is coming we get notification...

    Buttttttttt.....outside this time of year (at night) its Peeper Frogs...Bull frogs...cicadas...owls.....yotes....snort wheeze of deer......coons chattering/fighting....whipoorwills......occasionally a Cat scream (panther/bobcat).......

    I like to sleep when it is storming pretty bad outside, just something about that noise and the thunder.

    I even have apps on my phone to mimic it.

    Are cicada's the little lizards? We have a few crickets that make a nonstop chirping noise. Thunder storms are awesome until the hail hits. There ain't nothing like a bear snuffling around outside a tent to keep young folk awake. Also just a bit of rain hitting the tent makes you think you may have the day off until you actually check and the dust is still flying. I've heard one wild cat scream in the outdoors in my life and that would be an awesome addition to night time sounds.

    We often get what sounds like a football team jumping on the roof.

    Peacocks. They land with a humongous THUMP.

    The sounds at night from a downtown, large city, Salvation Army Homeless shelter are quite interesting.

    Interesting but not pleasant.

    Rush, I'll bet they are.

    Yep that's a loon. They have quite a range of noises.

    The bear snuffling in the bush is a mite spooky.

    In a changing season like this the sounds change too. Now you can tell which neighbors within 4 miles are working cattle as the bawling of the herd is quite loud. Geese are moving early and late, funny how not everyone can identify species by cackle. Silage cutters make a noise that identifies where the work is taking place and soon the combines will be churning out dust by the mega tons.

    Gosh darn snakes are migrating and a sound I hate is them turds slithering through the grass. Geese in flocks of 100,000+ can make most look. The popping of shotguns early in the am is a sure sign the migration is on. The falling leaves make such a neat noise that it makes me wonder why more people don't slow down to enjoy it.

    While walking back to the truck yesterday I got reminded of my youth by a Meadowlark. What a sweet sound. I remember when there would be one on every 10th fence post and dad told me they were even thicker in the 30's.

    Must be fall. Kinda/sorta foggy out so I ain't left for work yet. Been out checking on my flock/herd/yard/hay and what a beautiful calm morning. Just sitting on the deck in a wet chair I was listening to about 50 coyotes singing as maybe 5,000 geese were talking on the slough to the East. A large flock of crows started up as it got daylight enough for them to see. A woodpecker started rattling early and then one of the piglets musta got pissed at something. The rooster still thinks it knows it's job and the only man made sound was a jet at about 60,000 feet I wish was going the other way.

    I feel very lucky to live in a quiet area where you can hear the distant sounds. Any time weather permits me to have the windows open at night I will usually hear frogs, crickets, wonderful bird songs in the evening (robins, wrens, night hawks, etc..), distant train and the occasional vehicle that drives by my road at night. The frogs get quite loud certain times of year. When I am lucky I will hear coyotes howling (and barking when close) and barred owls which make wonderful sounds "Who cooks for you?". For some reason I also find great joy hearing my cat run around playfully at night when she gets in that night-hyper mode cats get in.

    I too love the sound of thunder and find it great to sleep to.

    That's called tinnitus. It can drive some people to chew on the barrel of an M&P 40.

    Thats all I hear too.

    Mostly farm noises. Cows will moo, dogs will bark. On some mornings if things are still I can hear a distant fog horn from the tug boats (4.5 miles away).

    During the summer on weekends we occasionally hear gunfire. Might last a half hour while somebody practices a bit of group therapy.

    What I don't hear is sirens. I so enjoy not hearing the wailing of emergency vehicles.

    During the month of February during the nights the frogs are constantly doing their ribbit, ribbit stuff.

    ...and of course when its raining (1/2 the time) we hear...rain.

    I heard a rabbit scream late one night, looked out the window and the coyote was walking away with the rabbit in his mouth. Didn't know they could scream like that. Kinda creepy.

    I have used and sold these WaterOz supplements, and this one is purported to work for Tinnitus.

    However, I prefer to obtain my elemental supplementation via food, and have thus highlighted that portion below.

    If there is anything in that list you like to eat, the go for it!

    Right now I hear wind chimes, crickets, and death metal.

    I live in the city, the cricket showed up when my daughter was 6 months pregnant, and he has been strumming every night for us; now going on 5 months.

    In the morning the first sounds I typically hear are crows, geese and that tiny chirp of humming birds.

    Tomorrow morning I will walk over to the Potato bush and listen to the Carpenter Bees as they extract the pollen from the flowers, assuming I can hear the sound over the songs of sparrows, swallows, finches, and even those surprisingly musical squirrels.

    I think the Crows, Egrets and Hawks are my favorites because they love music, but they sound like shit when they sing, especially the Egrets.

    When I hike in the mountains and I hear a Woodpecker, I whistle the Woody Woodpecker song and they all freak out.

    I used to think that jam-packed freeway sounds were the loudest, until a hike in the mountains a few months back when the wind through the trees made the freeway sound like a whisper.


    Sounds are everywhere, but you have to be able to listen...

    Imitating it sure works to get coyotes within spitting distance.

    Thanx Aurumag. I think there's some good homeopathic (dietary) supplements that can mitigate the debilitating effects caused by tinnitus. Since introducing raw sunflower seeds, Spinach, and avocados in my diet, the severity of the tinnitus has diminished to a tolerable level.

    I still have it (tinnitus), but the volume/intensity has gone way down, to the point where ambient noise mostly cancels out the ringing noises and its almost unnoticeable. And the number of notes I was hearing has gone down as well. Definitely an improvement.

    Its my own damn fault. Playing music in a loud rock band, riding the H-D and flying a C-172 Skyhawk with little or no hearing protection will take its toll.

    We ultimately get what we deserve, I suppose.
