From the two hours of tape recordings we made, I selected the following species either because they can be target species or because you'll often hear them without seeing them (like Asian Koel). Of course this is just a small selection of what you'll hear there.

A huge collection of bird sounds from SE Asia is on Jelle Scharringa's CD-ROM Birds of Tropical Asia, see www.birdsongs.com for details. Many of the recordings on this splendid CD-ROM are from West Malaysia.
