3 minute audio sample from the 153 minute nature soundscape recording; “Paperbarks by Still Water - Cajeput Waterhole”. Listen to the complete recording: http://www.listeningearth.com/play/album/94Paperbarks.php It is the dry season in the Kimberley region of far northwestern Australia. The waters of the Fitzroy River flow slowly, forming deep pools that reflecting the sky and the paperbark trees that line its banks. These paperbarks are known as Cajeput in the local indigenous language, and have given their name to one of these still water pools. Dawn has come to Cajeput Waterhole, and the birdlife attracted to this place is in full voice. A rich variety of species can be heard; among them pigeons and doves, friarbirds, flycatchers, whistlers, bee-eaters, butcherbirds, babblers, wagtails, finches, lorikeets, cuckoo-shrikes, and a variety of honeyeaters. Downstream, rapids can faintly be heard early on, but as the morning progresses and the air warms, these become less noticeable, and the birdsong becomes more spacious. Every now and then a faint splash signals the presence of fish in the nearby pool. This is a single un-edited recording, allowing you to sit and listen under the cajeput trees on the banks of the river, as birds sing all around.
