    Default Australian Bird calls

    I am looking to collect bird calls for playback.

    What are the best CDs to buy to get most them at the lowest cost?

    Plenty of options in the USA but it seems a bit scarce for Aussie bird calls

    Thanks

    Best resource by far is the BOCA set which is the complete Aus birds. Obviously more expensive than buying a one off but usually the one off ones only cover common species for a specific area. Depends on what area you are after i suppose. I bought one years ago which was just tropical nth QLD which was good before a trip to Cape York, but no better/worse than the BOCA ones.

    Another option is the Simpson and Day collection. It is a single CD and has about 600 Australian birds. David Stewart produces bird call CDs of specific regions and hence good if you are visiting just one or two regions.
