New Guinea – Lowland Rainforest Dawn
Recordist: Marc AndersonBirds Head Peninsula, West Papua, Indonesia
Recommended charity: Reforestaction
A vivid dawn chorus from the steamy forests of lowland West Papua. While the rainforest is still dark, Hooded Butcherbirds sing melodic fluty phrases to welcome the new day. The calls of nocturnal frogs and insects gradually fade as other diurnal species become active.
