Les McPherson has recorded most of the 230 New Zealand bird calls which take us up to the pips on Morning Report each morning.  Les has been perching on cliff tops and in the bush recording "The Bird" for over 50 years and over the years Les has collected a huge amount of recordings. Among them a series of seven one-hour-long guides to the Songs of New Zealand Birds, a guide to the Birds of the Pacific, and the Chatham Islands.
