GELLERMAN: We leave you this week in the Blue Mountains.

[VARIOUS BIRD CALLS]

GELLERMAN: Bird calls reverberate in a deep gorge in Blue Mountains National Park. Here, west of Sydney, Australia, it’s a landscape filled with cliffs and waterfalls, and sandstone rock formations that provide habitats for a wide variety of wildlife. Andrew Skeoch recorded these rich sounds for his CD “The Blue Mountains.”

[SLOW AND FAST BIRD CALLS, HIGHER AND LOWER IN PITCHED, ECHOES, THE SOUND OF BUZZING INSECTS, A SCREECHING BIRD CALL]
