  • Description

    Recording notes: in the sequence #51828-51830. The frogs of Spirey Creek introduce us to the valley, where, in the middle ground, a Pied Butcherbird is singing from a solitary cypress pine soon after 5 o'clock on a cool spring morning. The dawn chorus is just beginning. Approach closer to the cypress, the microphone is turned to listen to each point of the valley, while the Pied Butcherbird continues to sing in the background.
