Cry of the owls

Etcetera Etcetera Etcetera

night song

Sydney June 2014 (2 photos)

Forgotten Songs, a permanent street art installation by Michael Thomas Hill, commemorates fifty birds and their songs, once heard in central Sydney before they were gradually forced out of the city by European settlement. The calls, which filter down from the canopy of birdcages suspended above, change as day shifts to night; the daytime birds’ songs disappearing with the sun and those of the nocturnal birds which inhabited the area sounding into the evening. At night, you may hear the Australian Owlet-nightjar, Powerful Owl, Southern Boobook, Barn Owl, Tawny Frogmouth and White-throated Nightjar.
