This MP3-DVD is version 2.0 of the first MP3-CD made by Peter Boesman, published in 2005. It contains four times more recordings and 500 more birdspecies than version 1.0! Never before such an extensive publication has been published by our recordist Peter Boesman. And the best news is: we managed to lower the price and at the same time added 50 % more birdspecies and 4 times more recordings!

A record number of bird species No less than 4699 recordings of 1558 species are included on this single MP3-DVD! That is 95% of all the Landbirds of Brasil. The collection of recordings has a total playing time of over 41 hours, the equivalent of some 40 audio CD.
All the sounds on one MP3-DISC When preparing a birdtrip to Brazil, the selection of birdsounds is a labourintensive and time-consuming task. Now Peter Boesman has done this work for the birdwatcher visiting Brazil. The sounds for this production were carefully selected, checked and integrated by him. To make it even more easy all recordings are ready to put on your iPod, iPhone, iPad or any other MP3-player (as long as it has 1.5 GB of space).
A landmark production This collection can be considered quite complete (> 95% Brazilian birdspecies can be found on this single disc). It includes most of the vocalizations commonly heard while exploring Brazilian nature. This is the first time ever such a complete collection is being published for Brazil. Nearly half of all South-American birdspecies are presented on this unique disc.
Most of the recordings have been taken by Peter Boesman in Brazil itself during his many trips all over the country in the last 20 years. To increase the overall comprehensiveness an important number comes from other (surrounding) neo-tropical countries. Peter could use his database of over 23.000 recordings from the Neotropics. While this formed an excellent basis to start from, it is thanks to the many contributions of other recordists that this comprehensiveness could be achieved.
Every recording includes embedded information such as English name, Scientific name, Date and time of recording, Locality name with coordinates, Recordist, and in some cases further remarks or comments about background species. This information can be consulted in standard software like Windows Media Player, iTunes and even on some MP3 players like the iPod series. Typically several soundfiles per species are included, e.g. to illustrate different types of vocalizations, to illustrate some degree of geographical variation or to document vocalizations from different corners of a bird’s distribution.
