I would think the calls are a lot better if they are from Dave's
collection. I'm not knocking the BOCA series, because I rely on them a

more recently Graeme Chapman, are superior in audio quality, and the ones
I've heard eliminate the pleasant but confusing ambient sounds of the bush
- and other bird calls!
