Tropical North-east region of Australia enjoys a very diverse
range of bird species, and includes many of this countries most interesting
birds. The region is bounded in the south by Rockhampton (Tropic of
Capricorn) , extends north to the top of Cape York and includes the
Great Dividing Range. The Wet Tropics refers to the World Heritage area
of tropical rainforest from Mt. Spec (north of Townsville) to the Big
Tableland (south of Cooktown). The CD contains calls of 83 species.
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. A list of the species, with call description and behaviour notes, can be found inside the cover. For those people with a particular interest in any of the calls, further information can be obtained from the author.
Birds Australia, the largest bird organisation
in the country, endorses and recommends this CD to anybody interested
in enjoying and knowing the calls of many of Australia's wonderful birds
found only in this region.
