The sound of an Australian Magpie (Gymnorhina Tibicen) standing on my front lawn, this sound is known as 'carolling' with a few squawks thrown in at the end (the squawks are a more common magpie sound). In the background you can faintly hear the sound of some 'Noisy Miners' (birds) and Rainbow Lorikeets. This is a classic Australian suburban sound, and one that expatriated Australians miss when overseas for extended periods. I have filtered out low frequencies (unrelated to the bird) from traffic in the background. Recording distance ~ 5 meters. Recording chain: Rode NT4 (stereo mic) – Sound Devices Mix Pre (Pre amp) – Edirol R-09 digital recorder.
