1 Track (70mins)
1. Birdsong featuring the Grey Shrike-thrush Sample
(No music or narration)

Note from James Wild: Birdsong could very well be the most beautiful music in the world and the Grey Shrike-thrush has given us oodles of listening pleasure while living at Mount Macedon in Australia. The idea for this title began one day when Fiona and I were outside soaking up the lovely atmosphere of the forest and a Shrike-thrush was overhead in full song. It was so delightful that I fetched my recorder and captured some great audio. It inspired me to get more and the result is this track - 70 mins of uninterrupted birdsong. Featured are many individual birds and I managed to include the intriguing dance of courtship and the enchanting call and response of individual pairs.

It was a joy to create this album and simply marvelous how many of our neighbours comment on the beautiful singing of this bird. Nature is indeed a wonder to behold. Enjoy!!
