Australian Bird Calls:
Broome Region

The bird calls on this CD include 82 species, most of which were recorded in the vicinity of Broome Bird Observatory. Forty four of these species are shorebirds, and it is likely that some of their calls, especially those of migrating flocks, have not been published previously. Most bird enthusiasts will know that observing shorebirds is a highly visual experience, but may not be aware of the wide range of their calls.

CD cover: Australian Bird Calls - Broome RegionBroome Bird Observatory is on the shores of Roebuck Bay and lies 25 road kilometres to the south east of Broome township. The large congregations of shorebirds at Roebuck Bay are internationally well known. Each year enthusiasts with an interest in shorebirds and their migration, come to the bird observatory to experience the phenomenon of the incredible number of waders comprising many species. The calls of the shorebirds on this CD are mainly the result of a six week visit during March/April 1999 to record single species flocks as they departed on their annual migration to the northern hemisphere, where they breed.

The CD also features the calls of 40 species other than shorebirds, including all the mangrove species as well as a number of bush birds of the immediate region. Bird enthusiasts with an interest in calls of song birds will be amazed at just how different are the calls of some common species in this region compared with calls of the same species in other parts of Australia. English names and sequence follow Christidis and Boles, 1994 in the Taxonomy and Species of the Birds of Australia and its Territories. A useful adjunct to this CD is The Birds of Broome, 1995 published by the Broome Bird Observatory.

This CD has been produced with the support of the Broome Bird Observatory.
