The Sound of Patagonian Trees Talking

A special quality that I love about the forests around Bariloche, is that the trees are huge. And they talk when the right amount of wind gets them moving.

Here is a clip of some Lengas blowing in the Patagonian wind. If you turn the volume all the way up you can hear them squeak with the push of the wind, sounding very much like a whale. Listen carefully around 25, 30, 53, and 58 seconds, as well as minutes 1:34, 1:37-9.
