Lunch in the Park

We are having some beautiful fall weather here in Tennessee. The other day I packed my lunch and spent my lunch break in a quiet secluded spot on the Greenbelt near where I work. I found a bench to sit on and sat near a pond. I could hear the trees rustling in the wind, the cars on the road off in the distance and an occassional siren. I also kept hearing a sound that was unfamiliar to me. It knew it wasn't a bird or an insect sound. It was a dull clucking sound and stopped when I got up to look for it. Then it would start up again a few minutes later when I sat down. I'm thinking it might have been some ducks or geese. I'll have to bring someone with me next time to help me figure it out!

Maybe the bench was creaking..like one of the slats was loose and your body movements made it creak...not a cluck but a creak :)

That is possible. I haven't gone back and will try it again. New sounds do take a while to figure out when one is alone!
