Sounds of Southwest Missouri and the Ozarks
When I moved from my country home in Southwest Missouri to city life in Florida, among the many other things I missed, were the sounds of summer in my native Ozarks. Background sounds in movies could bring a rush of memories of my youth. Now that I have returned I am devoting a page to those Ozarkians who may be no longer be living here. Here are some of the sounds you may be missing.
There is nothing quite like sitting outside in the Ozarks country on a warm summer evening. As my Rhode Island born wife put it, it can be deafening. In that roar, is a choir of unique creatures.
Many of these sounds are off-site and linked from here for your convenience. I am not a scientist, so if any information on here is incorrect, please let me know.
