In the May/June 2021 installation of Soapboxing for the middle of the food chain, at the University of Maine’s Lord Hall Gallery, the following species may be heard. (This list is as thorough as i could make it; there are undoubtedly species i've missed.)

Eighty percent of the sound material was recorded within less than half a mile from Lord Hall. The remaining sounds were gathered at four locations: Alton, Bangor, Blue Hill and Sedgwick, Maine, all within fifty miles or less.
