Thank you to Dan, Mark and David for your help.
This seems to be more complex than what I thought it would be.=A0 With temp=
eratures dropping, the night sounds I am looking for may have reduced too m=
uch but I will still work with it when my health allows.=A0
Are there=A0existing=A0sound recordings of a=A0typical summer night in a No=
rth American prairie or woods?=A0 I would like to have a full 8 hours cycle=
.=A0 I will pay for it.=A0 What I have found so far are much shorter record=
ings and specialized recordings.=A0
Brinibox.=A0 I found nothing on Google or a couple of other search engines =
except references to this site.=A0 Can someone refer me to a basic explanat=
ion and plans?=A0
My original plan was to simply take the DR-100, stick it in a tree, protect=
 it from dew and rain and come back in say 10 hours and retrieve it.=A0 Cho=
ose different times of the year and different weather conditions.=A0 I thou=
ght I had myself covered with its existing microphones.=A0 Later figure out=
 some type of DIY parabolic microphone and go for something specialized.=A0=
 Money is an issue because I am on disability, so I need to make wise and p=
rudent decisions.=A0
Sounds like I need to rig some sort of Brinibox, invest in some microphones=
 and the cords from the Tascam to the microphones.=A0I guess I don't need n=
ew stuff as long as it works.=A0 Any ideas what would work?
After looking at David's site:=A0 =A0I already have a couple of small tents=
 but not a private place where they would probably be safe alone.=A0 I will=
 need to find such a place or rig something off the beaten path, low profil=
e and=A0=A0camouflaged like a low tarp covered with leaves.=A0 I can do tha=
The Tascam DR100 came with a foam piece to cover the microphones.=A0 Do I n=
eed something more extensive for wind?=A0
For now, could I wrap the Tascam in an old wool sweater, wrap it in plastic=
, put it in say=A0on piece of wood?=A0 Is the wool there for anything other=
 than absorbing dew or ambient moisture?=A0 I still have not figure out how=
 to protect the exposed microphones.=A0 I have learned here I don't want an=
ything flapping in the breeze to ruin the recording.
Thank you again for your kind help.=A0
