Birds of Peru MP3 Sound Collection

Publicat per Birdsounds.nl

A MAJOR GAP GETS FILLED
Peru is one of the countries with the highest diversity of birds on earth. With this Sound Collection, Peru finally has a major publication illustrating the vocalizations of the local avifauna.
The aim of this work is to cover as many birdspecies as possible occurring in this birdrich country. It includes most of the vocalizations commonly heard while exploring Peruvian nature, with a strong focus on the ‘Peruvian landbirds’.

A RECORD NUMBER OF BIRD SPECIES
No less than 3347 recordings of 1530 species are included on this single MP3-DVD! The collection of recordings has a total playing time of over 28 hours, the equivalent of some 25 audio CD's !!

A LANDMARK PRODUCTION
Most of the recordings have been taken in Peru itself, but to increase the overall comprehensiveness an important number comes from other neo-tropical countries. Peter could use his database of over 20.000 recordings from the Neotropics. While this formed an excellent basis to start from, it is thanks to the many contributions of other recordists that this comprehensiveness could be achieved !

THE BEST OF MP3
Every recording includes embedded information such as English name, Scientific name, Date and time of recording, Locality name with coordinates, Recordist, and in some cases further remarks or comments about background species. This information can be consulted in standard software like Windows Media Player, iTunes and even on some MP3 players like the iPod series.
Typically several soundfiles per species are included, e.g. to illustrate different types of vocalizations, to illustrate some degree of geographical variation or to document vocalizations from different corners of a bird’s distribution.
