Birds of Northwest Ecuador, Vol. I: The Upper Foothills & Subtropics

Birds of Northwest Ecuador, Vol. I: The Upper Foothills & Subtropics

Olaf Jahn, John V. Moore, & others

This audio 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. The DVD also contains a comprehensive digital booklet in PDF format and an Excel format file containing recording information for each cut. There are 1128 separately announced recordings of 213 species. It is the fully revised 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. It includes 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 Birds of Northwest Ecuador vol II: The Lowlands and Lower Foothills (Jahn et al. 2003) and will also be included in a forthcoming comprehensive revised edition of the former publication. The goal is to achieve a high degree of completeness, not only including song repertoires but also a wide variety of calls and mechanical sounds for each species.
