Hello Recordis, greeting from Mexico. Yes i did the dawn and dust chorus. I
did them in a Cloud Forest near from my facilities Institution. By dawn
chours I was in that place at 05:30, but the chorus began aprox. 06:30 AM
(summer time) and lasted by 40 minutes. By the dust chorus i started
recordig at 06:00 PM, but the chorus peak was around 07:15 PM and lasted by
45 minutes. In the dawn chorus i first heard frogs, but the first birds was
mottled owl, after brown jay, spot crowned woodcreeper, wedge-tailed
sabrewing, violaceus trogon, blue crowned motmot, plain chachalaca,
common-bush tanager, rusty sparrow, chesnut-capped brush-finch, northern
waterthrush and other.. Dust Chorus: spot breasted wren, chesnut-capped
brush-finch, frogs, gray-necked wood rail, dusky-capped (olivaceus)
flycatcher, band backed wren, great-tailed grackle, Brown Jay, Clay colored
robin, wedge-tailed sabrewing, montezuma oropendola, and othes. I made a
more or less good recording, because the only one problem was the car noise
and dog barking. The Montezuma Oropendola, Clay colored robin and
gray-necked wood rail were by far the best cut.
