    could you perhaps upload a smaller portion of the clip as well? to make it under 30MB or so..? that'd be splendid.

    I, too, may use this is a project. It is a sound-of-the-day today, so you may be getting more listens today, I expect. If you'd not mind uploading the high-res, it would be appreciated. Best regards!

    Thanks Ranney. This is definitely one of my most favourite sounds. A well tuned Bullet is like music to my ears. This one's idling speed is a little on the higher side though.

    Thanks a lot. You are most welcome to use the sound in your film. If you require the high-res 24x92 version please let me know. Ambient sound recording just for fun is in its nascent stage in India now. If you need anything specific from India do let me know. I will try if possible. I have a better microphone now :-) Rode NT4.

    Very nice, natural recording! I don't know if I have ever had a sound effect from India before! I can probably use this in a movie that we are making. Thanks for taking the time to upload your recording!

    You are absolutely right. It's indeed a Jungle Owlet. I am impressed by your keen ears and knowledge. On Xeno-Canto I have a better recording of the same bird. I didn't give the bird names here for two reasons - a. freesound is not really a bird vocalisation site. It's more into the sound than the species making the sound. b. I am not too good with birds of Western Ghats.
    If you have been able to identify any other sound, other than the Malabar Pied Hornbill please let me know. I also invite you to please listen to my bird call recordings on XC, if you are interested.

    It would be nice if you also mention some of the more prominent bird calls. I think Jungle Owlet is one of them...cheers and thanks!

    Would make a nice FX for video titling transition.

    After uploading the file I realised that I uploaded the unedited version that is almost inaudible. Can this be deleted by the moderators please? I shall upload the edited version.
