Dawn Chorus – 1’50”


Having caused relentless rain and destructive flooding for months, forecasters have recently declared La Nina to be on the wane. The rainfall induced by La Nina has brought new life to the local forests as heard here in this dawn chorus of whip birds, lorikeets and forest pigeons in Jerusalem National Park. Being so close to winter it’s impressive to hear the array of sounds present in the trees. It will be interesting to return to this spot to study how the soundscape changes over the ensuing months.
