I would be prepared to bet £1 of my own money that few, if any, listener would listen to the birdsong at around 0-40dB at home
Not Australian birds, Frank. Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are off the scale loud, especially 10 of them outside on the railing having a 'get-together' at 5am...
And Kookaburras can be deafening. Also magpies and Kurrawongs- those bastards are loud.
The bush curlews make a terrible sound- like a really deafening woman's scream.
I'll try to capture some and post the SPL meter numbers some time when I've got nothing better to do.
