Product Details


One of the most spectacular water bird sanctuaries of the world - the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary which was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1985 – can be found in between Jaipur and Agra, less than 200 km south of India’s capital New Delhi. Consisting of lakes, marshes, thickets, scrub, and dry savannah, the Sanctuary provides a singular opportunity to observe a huge variety of birdlife. The number of birds to be found in winter - the season when the recordings on this CD were made - is, in fact, so large that it is almost impossible to single out any particular species. What presents itself to the visitor of the Sanctuary is a big chorus of many, many different voices, with some of them coming to the centre of the stage in especially dramatic moments. The CD "Opera of birds" is a guided soundwalk through the Sanctuary which provides you with an overview of the most prominent species of birds to be found in Bharatpur in the winter season - and may also be used for a relaxing listening experience.

Natural Sound

Song of robin and wren by the stream … drumming of a great spotted woodpecker … the hare once again comes down the slope … rustling dry leaves … scolding alarm of a passing blackbird … deep buzzing of hornets flying to their nest …
Walter Tilgner, author and producer of more than ten Natural Sound CDs with WERGO, has succeeded again in eliciting concertlike sound pictures from meadows, valleys, and forests. With these extraordinary natural sound pictures, he not only attempts to convey a feeling of joy, relaxation and inspiration, but also wants to encourage the listener to walk among the trees of a wood, eyes and ears alert, to penetrate the secrets of the sylvan world, and thus to achieve a true experience of nature. For about twenty years, Tilgner’s main activity has been the documentary recording of the sounds of the natural world, the creation of sound pictures.
