This is a dawn chorus for my friend Sofia. I haven’t met Sofia because she lives in the US, and i live in Australia.

I got up very early this morning (monday 7th October 2013), before sunlight and walked down to the lake here in Fryers Forest. It is spring here so the place is really alive.

In this recording you can hear frogs and the abundance of birds including the “laughing” Kookaburra. Towards the end some Galahs fly over, making a screeching racket.

    Hahaha I live with (translation: am owned by) a Galah and yep, unmistakably galahs there towards the end! The alarm clock industry should take note, these parrots know what they're doing and could teach 'em a thing or two. ;)

    Anyway, I downloaded this to put in my little guy's audio toy and I've a feeling he'll really appreciate it so, thank you. This is a real treat. :)

    Thanks for this lovely recording. I'm using it in a presentation to a View Club on behalf of BirdLife Melbourne to help illustrate what birds provide in our lives.

    Thanks for your comment, it was recorded as an MS setup using a Sennheiser 416 matched with a Sennheiser MKH30.
