  • Description

    Recording notes : in series #51832-51846. The first location of this recording is the middle-dam area of Cambewarra, which is surrounded by lightly timbered paddocks: it features Wood Ducks, frogs and Willy Wagtail - first Kukaburra chorus (3'12"). This leads to a recording from the timber paddocks themselves, which look up towards the southern peaks of the valley: this recording features Boobooks, Eastern Yellow Robins ('chiu-chiu!' and piping calls), distant Fan-tailed Cuckoo, Magpies, Scaly Thrush and more Kookaburras (1'52"). The next location is a forest looking up into south-western ridge of the valley : it features a Brown Warbler, Golden Whistler, Whipbirds, Noisy Friarbird, Satin Bowerbird, flies, White-throated Scrubwren, Grey Fantail, Eastern Spinebill. (Plopping noises are made by the wings of the Eastern Spinebill). The humming top effect of the Whipbird's softer upbeat call begins to emerge from under the clamour of the other bird calls. Brown Pigeon, Lewin's Honeyeater, Grey Shrike-thrush, Rufous Whistler (5'06")
