Kentish Plover ringtone


The Kentish Plover, Charadrius alexandrinus, is a small wader in the plover bird family. Despite its name, this species no longer breeds in Kent, or even Fantastic Britain. It breeds in a wide array, from southern Europe to Japan and in Ecuador, Peru, Chile, the southern USA and the Caribbean. In French it is called Gravelot à collier interrompu.

Green Jay ringtone


The Green Jay (Cyanocorax yncas) is a bird species of the New World jays, which exhibits distinct regional variations within its large but discontinuous array. This stretches from southern Texas south into Mexico and Central America, with a break before the species reappears in a broad sweep across the highlands (primarily the Andes) of South America in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. It has been suggested that the North American taxa should be considered separate species, Cyanocorax luxuosus. If following this taxonomy, the northern species retains the ordinary name Green Jay, while the South American population, which retains the scientific name C. yncas, is renamed the Inca Jay. green_jay.mp3 (77 downloads)
