Some time ago, in either a post or a comment, I promised Becky I’d try to record the songs of the birds in our back garden.
I’ve been trying to record those songs ever since without much success, but I think the following is (at the very least) a halfway decent representation of the beautiful noise that fills our home on a daily basis.
You will need to turn your volume up and ignore the occasional sound of passing traffic. To be honest, I was only vaguely aware of the traffic and it never ceases to amaze me how our auditory sense automatically filters out repetitive background noise.
This singing fills our home morning, noon and yes, even throughout the night – especially when a Willy Wagtail is proclaiming his territory.
I must say, I’ve even had several of my friends comment on the lovely birdsong they can hear when I’m talking to them on the phone.
Mostly we can’t see the birds and, even though I made the recording in our back garden, the birds themselves reside in the bushland on the other side of our back fence.
That’s not to say our garden is bird free. Far from it, we have a lot of birds visiting our grevilleas on a daily basis and I’m certainly pleased the birds find this enticing.
