SONAT, my private collection of audio recordings, started in 2002 and contains recordings of animal sounds (mainly birds) and soundscapes. My recordings are produced using monaural, stereo, mid-side, and multi-channel systems and collected for scientific purposes and made during my travels. The majority of the sounds are recorded in Mexico, but recordings from other countries are being archived as well (e.g. Cuba, Panama, Puerto Rico, USA, Germany, France, Belgium, among others countries).

EDUCATIONAL PRODUCTS


If you want to hear more about my recordings, you can look for my latest audio guides in the BIRD SONGS OF MEXICO website. These CD’s are designed to help you learn specific calls and songs, therefore, giving you a better experience in the field. You might only travel to a certain birding spot once in your lifetime and guides such as these will help you ID rare species by ear quickly and accurately.
