Here are some items related to my research in the Neotropics:
I have been recording bird vocalizations for almost twenty years, with material from North America, Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, and Europe. Most of these have been deposited in the sound collections at CornellĠs Macauley Library and the LSU Museum of Natural Science sound lab. If you are interested in using recording materials, contact me.
Below is a recording that is of particular interest to others visiting San Martin, Peru. Please note that this recording is for field and personal use only. Contact me if you wish to use it in a publication.
I also take a fair number of photos while in the field. I havenĠt got many of these on-line, but I do keep them in a somewhat organized slide and digital photo library of bird, habitat, and people shots. Contact me if you think I have something that may be of use to you.
