On the subject of Australian bird calls perhaps
I can give a plug to the Australian Wildlife Sound Recording Group.
The AWSRG is relatively new (formed
officially" last October ).We are a body of 40 or so individuals spread
over all states, 95% of whom are birdos.
As the name suggests we are dedicated to the
recording and study of all wildlife sound and as such we will produce a CD twice
a year(for members only) containing examples of members recordings that
illustrate a particular subject.
For example the first CD delt with pre-dawn
calls of honeyeaters, the variation of the calls of the Striated Pardalote with
examples from many different areas in Australia and bird calls recorded from
Little Desert in Victoria.
Our members are naturally interested in
producing "quality" recordings and most have professional
equipment to get the best possible sound quality that they can but it is also
the subject of the recording that is important and interesting to the group as a
If your interested in recording birds or the
study of bird vocalisations and would like to join the group it will cost you
$20.00 per year (not bad for 2 CDs and 2 'AudioWings' newsletters)
or if you would just like more info
