Birds of Australia - recordings of more than one bird species

There are circumstances in which it is typical for more than one bird species to be present, e.g. in the case of flocks of aquatic birds, in particular when they are flushed together. Therefore, in some cases it is not possible to isolate the calls of one species from others, when they overlap in both time and frequency space. Here a small selection of recordings that fall into this category. Names of bird species are listed by order of appearance in the sound tracks.
