Product Description

Publisher: John V. Moore Nature Recordings
2008

The Birds of Northwest Ecuador, Volume 1 Audio CD features bird calls from the upper foothills and subtropics of northwestern Ecuador. This is a fully revised and expanded version edition of the 3 CD publication published in 1999 by Moore et al and contains almost all of the original recordings, about 700 new recordings and 23 additional species.

The publication consists of a CD containing all vocalizations in MP3 format and a data DVD with all recordings presented in WAVE format arranged into folders for 7 CDs. Also included is a comprehensive booklet in both digital (PDF and Excel) and hard copy format containing recording information for each cut.

Presented are 1128 separately announced recordings of 213 species and include the sounds of nearly all the birds predominantly inhabiting the humid life zones of the upper foothills and lower subtropics on the northwestern Andean slope of Ecuador. Most of the species which range from the coastal lowlands into the foothills are not included in this publication since many have been previously published in The Birds of Northwest Ecuador, Vol.2: The Lowlands and Lower Foothills (Jahn et al. 2003) and will also be included in our forthcoming comprehensive revised edition of the former publication.

The mid-elevation montane and premontane forests of northwest Ecuador support a wealth of bird life, including a large number of species and subspecies endemic to the exceptionally rich “Chocó Faunal Region”. This important biogeographic area extends northward into western Colombia, and this is the first audio publication to feature a large number of these endemics. For some of the wider-ranging species included in this publication, the discerning listener will note certain differences between the vocalizations presented and those of the same species (but usually a different subspecies) found elsewhere.
