Australian Bird Calls:
Tropical North-east

CD cover: Australian Bird Calls - Tropical North-eastThe 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.

 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, Inside front coverYellow-billed Kingfisher, Red-bellied Pitta, Fernwren, 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. 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.
