This recording was gathered beside the upper McCloud River in Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. It was a calm and clear morning on the first day of May and the birds sang cheerily in the warm sunlight.

Recently I was happy to receive the first donation to the podcast through the website. Unfortunately my happiness waned when I received an email that said the cardholder had disputed the charge and the bank refused the payment. I was further disheartened when I was charged a hefty returned payment fee by the company which handles online payment processing for my website. I find it hard to imagine that a person would fraudulently use somebody's credit or debit card to donate to a podcast, and I am guessing that the person that made the donation didn't recognize the charge or perhaps they forgot they made the donation. Either way, I really hope it was just a misunderstanding. That said, if you decide to donate to the podcast through the website and later decide to dispute the charge with your bank or credit card company, please know that I will be penalized, and possibly for more than the originally intended donation.
If you have any questions or comments you can email the podcast at email@example.com. You can also get in touch by visiting the website- https://soundbynaturepodcast.com/ -It's a work in progress, but it's a start.
I really hope that this or any of my other recordings provide you with a little solace in this ceaselessly chaotic world we all live in together. Whether you listen to help you achieve a meditative state of mind, for stress relieving natural ambience, to help you drift off to a restful night of sleep, or however you may listen to them, I hope they are benefitting you in any small way. Thank you all very much for listening. Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay sound.
