  • Description

    Recording notes: in the sequence #51828-51830. In the second part of the soundscape the members of the Pied Butcherbird's group sing antiphonal duets and trios from different parts of the valley. They may be as much as a hundred yards apart, singing from one tree to another. They introduce new musical material and different harmonic areas. In the final sequence a single bird makes a dramatic return to the opening harmony against the spiky counterpoint of a Noisy Friarbird.
