The Bird Sounds of Sri Lanka
Habitat Edition 2017
New Digital Album
- 152 species of birds featured
- in 8 different soundscapes of natural habitats.
This is a newly created, digital replacement of the landmark cassette tape titled ‘The Bird Sounds of Sri Lanka: Habitat Edition 2005’ published that year. It is a downloadable digital album in MP3 format (high audio quality MP3 digital files). Significantly improved in sound quality, this new digital version will provide you unforgettable enjoyment as you listen to our beautiful bird sounds.
The album features over 250 different sounds of 152 bird species, and plays for over 2 ½ hours.
It comprises eight tracks, each 8 to 35 minutes long, of bird sounds, in eight different habitats. Some songbirds with melodious vocalizations are featured for a longer time. A brochure provided in the form of a printable PDF document offers a guide to identifying the different bird species heard on each track.
The MP3 album can be used either as a
- ‘sound guide’ to bird identification, or a
- bird ‘soundscape’ for ambience play (to provide background or atmosphere at home, work, in a vehicle…)
The MP3 album can be played in many ways:
- on your computer,
- on your personal portable music player (i.e. MP3 player, iPod, iPad, iPhone, Smartphone…), on an iPod audio docking station,
- on a MP3-supporting CD player in a car audio system,
- or such a DVD player of your home theater system (by making a MP3 CD with a suitable computer software),
- on such systems that support USB for audio play (by loading the album on a flash pen drive), and
- on any audio system that supports Bluetooth (with the album loaded onto a suitable portable music payer or a smartphone).
Listen to samples of the eight sound tracks featuring some of the soundscape of each habitat, below.
