I know it was a bird sounding sample, but wasn't it more of a seagull type call

Wasn't it influenced by the music of Martin Denny ?

That bird sound in Pacific State is not an owl. Its the call of the north american loon. I know this for a fact since I am from Canada and I hear it all the time. :wink:

Here's some more info on this bird. Cheers!


There's various samples there in wav and MP3 format.

I like this one in particular...

They do make unique calls. Their sound is also featured in "The Helicopter Tune" (jungle) and Sueno Latino's "Sueno Latino".

The bird sound is probably that of either the Common Loon or the Pacific Loon...Theres a zipped wav sample at http://www.nevillerecording.com/samples.html

Type the names into a search engine and you should get loads of site with other audio samples........GOOD LUCK

yeah - the Common Loon is better known as the Great Northern Diver in Europe, and the Pacific Loon, the Black-throated Diver (although some scientists believe there is a case for making the Pacific Diver or Loon a separate species).

I would think that it is likely given the track that it is a Pacific Diver/Loon featured... :)

Bird calls are incredibly fascinating. Anyone interested in sound should check out David Attenboroughs' 'Life Of Birds'. On there, they show what happens inside a bird to make certain noises, absolutely amazing! :)
