--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note from James Wild: Birdsong could very well be the most beautiful music in the world and the Grey Shrike-thrush has given us oodles of listening pleasure while living at Mount Macedon in Australia. The idea for this title began one day when Fiona and I were outside soaking up the lovely atmosphere of the forest and a Shrike-thrush was overhead in full song. It was so delightful that I fetched my recorder and captured some great audio. It inspired me to get more and the result is this track - 70 mins of uninterrupted birdsong. Featured are many individual birds and I managed to include the intriguing dance of courtship and the enchanting call and response of individual pairs.

It was a joy to create this album and simply marvelous how many of our neighbours comment on the beautiful singing of this bird. Nature is indeed a wonder to behold. Enjoy!!

Notes on this recording
Recorded in tall eucalypt forest at Mt Macedon, Victoria, Australia. There is no music or narration - just the wonderful sound of birdsong.

The Grey Shrike-thrush is a medium sized bird common throughout the eucalypt forests and woodlands of much of Australia. It's drab colour belies its melodious, beautiful singing, especially in spring. A typical pair will mate for life and maintain a 10 hectare breeding territory.

Other birds that join the Grey Shrike-thrush on this track are: Australian Magpie, Eastern Spinebill, Yellow Faced Honeyeater, Golden Whistler, Fan Tailed Cuckoo, Brush Bronzewing, Grey Fantail, Fairy Wren, White Browed Scrub Wren, Kookaburra, Australian Raven, White Throated Treecreeper, Striated Thornbill, Crimson Rosella, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Pardalote, Pied Currawong.
