The other day, I was up at 4:30 and recorded about 15 minutes of the
chorus as I can hear it in my garden (I live at the outskirt of a small
in Belgium).

I understand that a "Worldwide Dawn Chorus Recording" was organized in
by NatureRecordists... Marty, Rich, Rudy, John, Klas, and many others
their recordings...

Some of the recordings can still be found here :
However, all tracks seem to be very short (some unreadable for some
reason)... I wonder if there are longer ones available somewhere ?

Is there anything similar organized for this year ?
If not, wouldn't it be a great idea to do it this summer, with 5-15 min
recordings ? I would love to hear that... Would be great to put together
couple of hours of recordings !

Recordings would not need to be all located on the same server, as long
we keep track of the various links on a web page... For those who are
fortunate in terms of server space, it should be fairly simple to find a
site or a ftp site in an educational organization that could lend us the
space for a while...

Any interest ?

(I don't think there is as much of a dawn chorus and quiet day down here
as folks think. Even on hot, bright days quite a assortment of birds 
call all day long. And if it's cloudy and humid, even more. It's more 
like with dawn there is a gradual addition of species after species as 
the light increases, and the reverse with dusk. I'm sure there are some 
dawn specialists, but that's not all there is.)

It's quite the opposite here as you well know Walt, we get most of the
singers in the morning and they get right into it about 4:30am, we
literally get no bird sounds after dusk, if you go out into the
countryside you get the occasional Frog or taod and the odd insect
noise, what a contrast to Califormnia last week, bird calls and insects
through the night coming through my bedroom window.
