Last year I spent two wonderful months at the Reserva Ecológica de Guapiaçu in southeast Brazil. While I was there I was able to make numerous recordings of birds and from these recordings I’ve put together a sound-guide to one of the most popular trails on the reserve: the Waterfall Trail. Here are the recordings together with my commentary. Each track covers a section of the trail and includes birds that one might hear along each.
Track 2: Casa Pesquisa 0-350m
Track 3: The lower forest 350-850m
Track 4: The bamboo 850-1000m
Track 5: The clearing 1000-1250m
Track 6: The ascent 1250-1750m
Track 7: The gulleys 1750-2350m
Track 8: The waterfall 2350-2500m
If you’ve any comments I’d be very interested to hear them, particularly if you’re a Regua visitor and have an opportunity to walk the trail. Did you find that listening to the sound guide helped you to listen to the birds along the trail and to recognise what you were hearing?
