The Audio Oz Quizz – Answers

Question 1 – Recording from BrisbaneCapture d’écran 2014-02-22 à 07.36.22In every city, crossings are organized this way. Everyone respects the guidance, nobody but tourists would cross when the light is red. And the noise comes with the lights.

Question Two – Recording from CairnsBats in cairns

Currently, Cairns Regional Council and the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort are planning to disperse a colony of spectacled flying-foxes from the Cairns. Of course, environmental associations flight against this decision : “The colony does not pose a significant risk to the community, and we believe it should be left where it is. Flying-foxes are important pollinators and seed dispersers, and help to keep the rainforest healthy. In addition, the colony attracts many tourists who come to see the flying-foxes roosting during the day and flying out at night.”
Well, in my opinion, it is terribly noisy and pretty scary…

Question 3 – Recording from the Daintree Forestaborigines-music-452x298.jpg
This is a Didgeridoo. It is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia around 1,500 years ago and still in widespread use today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or “drone pipe”.

  1. Arrrghh…. j’ai raté le quizz, mais pas mal du tout ces sons,
    très intéressant, ils n’ont pas vraiment de correspondance ici,
    sauf peut-être le deuxième,
    il m’est arrivé d’assiter l’été dans le Berry à des vols d’étourneaux qui font un bruit d’enfer…

      • nothing… franchement, ya pas grand chose à ramener. Pour les croyant, une croix qui vient de Jérusalem is possible. Moi, j’ai pris un magnet pour frigo aux couleur de la GP🙂
