Thanks for the warm and substantial response, rr. I did do a podcast of the dawn chorus back in early winter, and should probably do one again now that we’re at the height of spring breeding season. The trouble is, for whatever reason, this is a really quiet year for birdsong, as my mother and I had occasion to document this morning with the first of our two annual point counts for the IBA (Important Bird Area). The numbers both of species and of individuals were just pitiful. I am hoping to record conversations with some of our hunters — glad to hear you’re interested in that.

Thanks to Clive for doing my job for me here and digging up those links! Do check out his regular website too, though the images on his blog tend to be larger/higher resolution.
