Mammal | Bird Vocalizations

To identify (nocturnal) species, vocalizations can often be of aid when in the field. During primate surveys in Africa, members of the Nocturnal Primate Research Group, Oxford Brookes, UK, recorded the vocalizations of various bird and mammal taxa. On this page we will, gradually, add recordings to the list below.
