John Hutchinson was an ornithologist and a birdcall recordist. This dataset includes all the bibliographic records for the digitised and available online bird song recordings in the SLWA catalogue. The records include links to the online recordings.
The team summarized their project thus: Did you know that in Australia, there are some 828 species of birds! So wouldn’t it be nice if our gadgets could tweet, chirp and cheep Australian bird sounds? At CatHacks, we thought we should literally ‘put a bird on it’ and made some ringtone and notification sounds of some of Australia’s finest. And many of these live in the Australian Capital Territory too!
