Celebrate nature’s symphony!
Recently it was International Dawn Chorus Day, a worldwide celebration of nature's greatest symphony- the dawn chorus. Thanks to a series of microphones live streaming from nature reserves around the world, listeners could tune into the sound of dawn somewhere in the world- all day long. From the jungles of Costa Rica, to the rainforest canopy of our very own Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, you could hear the incredible diversity of birds and other species as they welcomed the rising sun.
Listen to our Dawn Chorus!
The following two sound bites were recorded from Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. Listen up and identify as many sounds as you can recognise in each soundbite including specific bird calls, frog calls or mammal sounds (eg. wompoo pigeon).
Let us know your answers by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include in your email:
- the names of all specific species you can hear (may include birds, frogs and insects) in alphabetical order for each sound file (keep your lists separate)
- your contact details (name, phone number, email address)
- optional - if you have any social media handles you use (Instagram, Facebook)
You can also access our Mary Cairncross live streaming microphone 24/7. (Please be patient, it is a live soundfile so it does take up to 30 seconds to buffer depending on your location. Press play when the soundfile loads. You may also need to turn your sound up.)
