New Guinea – Lowland Rainforest Dawn

New Guinea – Lowland Rainforest Dawn

Birds Head Peninsula, West Papua,


Recordist: Marc Anderson
Location: Birds Head Peninsula, West Papua
Habitat: Lowland tropical rainforest
Notes: A vivid dawn chorus from the steamy forests of lowland West Papua. While the rainforest is still dark, Hooded Butcherbirds sing melodic fluty phrases to welcome the new day. The calls of nocturnal frogs and insects gradually fade as other diurnal species become active. More info
