Dear Andrew,

I finally got around to having a look at the sound quality of the bird
calls on Simpson and Day CD-ROM Birds of Australia V 4.1 following your
adverse comments regarding V. 3.  I'm not sure that I have software of
sufficient quality to make a definitive answer.  However looking at the
sound waves using Creative Wave Studio (Soundblaster 64) it seems to me
that while all of the voiced bird names are severely clipped, some of
the bird calls are OK and others are only slightly clipped.  Among the
clipped calls that I found are rufous scrubbird (not surprising)
and Bourkes parrot.  They were recorded using 8 bit resolution.

Hope this helps,

Llew Rintoul
