About this product

The collection of recordings presented here (some 2060 recordings of 765 species) has a total playing time of over 15 hours, the equivalent of some 15 audio CD's.

The collection can be considered quite complete, and includes most of the vocalizations commonly heard while exploring Costa Rican nature (excluding pelagic seabirds and the Cocos island endemics). This is the first time ever such a complete collection is being published for Costa Rica.

In recent years, about every country in the neo-tropics has seen some major publication illustrating the vocalizations of its avifauna. For Costa Rica, one of the countries with the highest diversity of birds on earth, and probably the number one traveling destination for eco-tourism, surprisingly this has not been the case. The present work aims to fill this gap. General knowledge of bird sounds has increased dramatically over the last decade, and as a consequence, whenever a new work is being published, also the level of expectation is gradually climbing. A mere single recording per species is no longer considered good enough a standard. We have therefore made a special effort to bring together a true sound collection, illustrating as much as possible the bird voices of Costa Rica: no less than 2060 recordings of 765 species are included.

Every recording includes embedded information such as English name, Scientific name, Date and time of recording, Locality name, Recordist, and in some cases further remarks or comments about background species.
