A series of highlight excerpts from the Vicki Powys Wildlife Sounds Database, selected by NFSA Sound curator, Tessa Elieff.
These recordings are a compilation of bird-call and atmospheres gathered by Australia's field recordist Vicki Powys, as heard within Capertee Valley, New South Wales. They commence with a recording of the Critically Endangered, Regent Honeyeater. Once a common bird, this species' breeding grounds have been reduced to only three known breeding areas in Australia. Capertee Valley is one of these.
Recorded between 1997 and 2011
