@ehBeth,
you should take a trip to the East Sahara . There , you can hear the dunes "sing" at about a 20 hz hum each dune has a slightly diff pitch and sometimes, very rarely, they harmonize, and it sounds like Throat singing.
Spooky

@farmerman,
Singing sand occurs in about 35 desert locations around the world and also in areas with large beach dunes.
The sounds produced by the dunes can reach a volume of up to 100 dB and are usually around 100 Hz; however, frequencies of up to 770 Hz have also been documented.

One of North Shore’s most popular attractions is at Singing Beach, Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA. (Been there.)

@farmerman,
An Old, Feisty Female Cardinal Bit the Same Scientist Eight Years Straight
Quote:
For eight years in a row, Eric caught the very same female cardinal. Eight years – that's about twice the average age of an adult cardinal. This aggressive female didn't just peck at the banders' fingers like other captured birds, but clamped its strong bill on to the soft flesh between his thumb and first finger. And held on tight. Ouch!

Each year that Eric re-caught the bird, he dreaded the experience, yet admired this particular Northern Cardinal.
