That is fine, Curt, I have no shortage of bubbles. 

I have been fooled by nature sounding artificial many times. Of course the 
first thing I thought was birds, but then I started thinking about the aerial 
drone test range that is currently under development not too far (20 miles or 
so)from this recording location. The increasing interest in drones for police 
and hobbyists is likely increasing the pressure of anthropogenic presence on 
natural soundscapes.
