about

This recording captures the nuances of the dawn chorus in groves and bushes. Some of the most lyrical songbirds nest in these glades. Many experts believe that the Blyth’s Reed Warbler and the Bluethroat are two of the birds with the most beautiful repertoires. Each individual seems to have a distinctive call and singing talents. The starling is also a skilled mimic, copying the calls of other songbirds.

The recordings also include the characteristic courtship rhythms of three woodpecker species found in the leafy forests in Finland. In addition, you can hear several rare species in Finland, for example the European Serin, the Black Redstart, the White-backed Woodpecker and the Yellow-breasted Bunting.

The recording of this CD was a challenge – but also a labour of love. I have the fondest memories of hearing wonderful dawn choruses on early spring mornings and can still almost taste the heady aroma of the leaves and flowers after dusk around midsummer. I express my heartfelt thanks to my loved ones, friends, ornithologists, guides, helpers – in fact to everyone who contributed to this recording.
