  • Description

    Recording notes: action: an unknown avian singer on the far left, seemingly interacting with Red-billed Hornbills (Tockus erythrorhynchus) in the centre of the soundpicture, flying insects: many and varied, "clicks" from Grey-backed Camaropteras, "choc choc" calls from a Western Grey Plantain Eater (Crinifer piscator), Vinaceous Doves, Red-billed Wood Doves, stridulating Orthopteras and various Cicadas providing a monotonous background soundscreen, soft breeze through the forest, rustling in the foliage. Sound description: a fine atmosphere recording, conveying the sense of still heat and stifling humidity.
