Experience an rich and varied morning of birdsong from East Africa.

In the darkness before dawn, Bush Babies, Nightjars and an African Scops Owl call quietly, before a Morning Thrush breaks the stillness with its pure, melodious song.

Over the next hour, the birdsong builds in waves, with Bulbuls, Doves, Bru-Brus, Hornbills, Go-Away-Birds, Spurfowl, Long-crested Eagle, Francolins, Puffbacks and Orioles all joining the flux of the dawn chorus.

This is a vibrant recording, rich with the diversity of birdlife to be encountered in the African dry tropics.

This album includes a bonus track, recorded in the same location the previous day, capturing the late afternoon birdsong as the sun dipped below the horizon.
