Album Description

The mountain rainforests of Far North Queensland provide habitat to a host of unique animals & plants. This album captures the vibrant sounds of the mountain rainforests from before dawn until about mid-morning. Each track was recorded on a different section of a stream flowing through the upland forest and the sounds of the water flowing make this an excellent album for noise-masking and relaxation.

Track Listing

1. Pre-dawn in the Cloud Forest (10:16)

I set the microphones and recorder by a stream at about 4am, the forest was nearly silent. Within a few minutes, Northern Barred Frogs started calling occasionally from the leaf litter, and a Lesser Sooty Owl screeched in the distance. As the sky begins to lighten, gargling chuckles from Orange-footed Scrubfowl ring through the forest. Golden Whistlers begin to sing, and the rattling call of a Golden Bowerbird sounds strangely beautiful as the sun begins to rise.

2. The Dawn Chorus (14:00)

Within a short time, birds start calling from all around, and the forest comes alive with the dawn chorus. The sounds of Grey-headed Robin, Spotted Catbird, Victoria’s Riflebird, Bower’s Shrike Thrush, Eastern Whipbird, Brown Cuckoo Dove, Yellow-breasted Boatbill, Brown Gerygone, White-throated Treecreeper & Pied Currawong can all be heard on this track.

3. Morning on Cloud Forest Creek (23:44)

The final track on the album was recorded a little further along the stream, and closer to the water’s edge. Bower’s Shrike Thrush continue to call, and close to the microphone a Tooth-billed Bowerbird sings his scratchy melody hoping to attract a mate. Towards the end of this track you can hear him imitate a flying cicada! Other bird calls on this track include Spangled Drongo, Grey Goshawk, Wompoo Fruit Dove, Emerald Ground Dove Black-faced & Spectacled Monarchs.

Bird species heard on this album include:

Orange-footed Scrubfowl, Grey Goshawk, Brown Cuckoo Dove, Wompoo Fruit Dove, Pacific Emerald Dove, Lesser Sooty Owl, Shining Bronze-Cuckoo, Black-faced & Spectacled Monarchs, Golden Whistler, Grey-headed Robin, Bower’s Shrike Thrush, Eastern Whipbird, Yellow-breasted Boatbill, Brown Gerygone, White-throated Treecreeper, Spotted Catbird, Golden Bowerbird, Tooth-billed Bowerbird, Victoria’s Riflebird, Pied Currawong and Spangled Drongo.
