The Atherton Tablelands of northeastern Australia are home to hundreds of species of birds, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. In November, 2000, I spent three weeks in the mountains near Atherton, Queensland. During this visit I recorded the songs and calls of many birds in Atherton's rainforests and dry eucalypt forests. Through this webpage I present my best recordings from these sessions.

Click on the buttons or bird names on the left side of the screen! Each button will link you to a page devoted to my recordings of that bird species. You can always return to this page by following the "Bird Songs of Atherton Home" button at the top left of each screen.

Click on the Credits and Links button at the bottom left to learn more about the equipment I used to make these recordings, to learn who helped with these recordings and who contributed photographs, or to find links to other webpages about bird songs and bird calls of Atherton and northeastern Australia.

On each page you will find two buttons.  The "Click to hear sound file" button will play a sound file through your web browser's software:

The "Short Version" button plays a small section of the larger sound file (these files will be easier to download if you have a slow internet connection):

If your web browser does not automatically play the sound files when you click on these buttons, you may need to download software to play sound files.  One such program is Winamp, which you can download for free from
