Australian Bird Calls: Tropical North-/Stewart, David/Audio/9505819477/S099-F
The sounds of the Australian bush come to life on these recordings by David Stewart.
The Tropical North-East region of Australia enjoys a very diverse range of bird species and includes many of this country's most interesting birds. The region includes 18 endemic bird species and a feature of this CD is the presentation of a range of calls for this unique group.
Species with amazing calls such as Great-billed Heron, Palm Cockatoo, Rufous and Lesser Sooty Owls, Yellow-billed Kingfisher. Red-bellied Pitta, Fernwren, Eungella Honeyeater, Chowchilla, Frill-necked Monarch, Magnificent Riflebird, Trumpet Manucode and Tooth-billed and Golden Bowerbirds are presented. Other more difficult to see species include Southern Cassowary, Red-necked Crake, Little Kingfisher, Atherton Scrubwren, Green-backed Honeyeater, Yellow-legged Flycatcher. Northern Scrub-robin and Blue-faced Parrot-Finch. Where possible, a number of calls of each species are featured. This makes the listener aware of the repertoire of sounds many of the birds possess, particularly songbirds.
This album features no music or spoken commentary. The natural calls of the birds of this region can be appreciated both as a source of pleasant sounds, or as a well documented reference source of many of the tropical north-east bird species, particularly those which are difficult to observe.
