A new record boosts support for endangered birdlife
A few months ago we put together a playlist on Spotify filled with our favourite songs that contained birdsong. It turns out we’re not the only ones who appreciate the combination of human and avian music. Now an album is being put out to support the conservation efforts of vulnerable birds in Central America.
The ten songs on A Guide to the Birdsong of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean sample the song of endangered and vulnerable birds from the region, with each track composed by artists from the same country as the bird.
Perhaps New Zealand could produce its own version? After all, we’ve got the local talent both in the trees and in the studio. And, when it comes to distinctive bird song, how many birds you know, got the skills to go, and tweet a song like this? Not many, if any.
