This is the first of a series of field recordings I’m hoping to post here that I made while travelling New Zealand and South East Asia in 2007. This example was recorded very early one morning at the White Horse Hill camping ground at the foot of Aoraki or Mount Cook. It is a flock of marauding keas (Nestor notabilis) whose playful investigations of the campervan roofs led to our rude awakening. They are accompanied by some workmen beginning repairs to the track nearby.
