: What about the crickets in the scene between Magua and Montcalm? ("Magua took the hatchet to color with blood...") You can also hear a chickadee, which makes me think this was filmed at sunrise or sunset since chickadees are not generally night creatures. Of course, it could have been put in later, too. There are also several bluejay cries throughout the movie.
Susan, I love the night sounds in that scene, too, but I have never heard the chickadee & will be listening for it now. You are right, it isn't a night bird at all. I HAVE noticed the bluejay cries in several scenes. I think most people believe them to be the calls of hawks, but I'm pretty sure they are jays. (Bluejays are notorious for giving a very good imitation of a red-shouldered hawk). I believe this is the bird cry we hear during the haunting music at the scene of the Cameron's burned cabin. What do you think?
