Parabolic reflector for audio

I'm looking for a lightweight parabolic reflector for recording bird songs, at least 20" diameter, with both tripod mount and handle for hand-held. I'd prefer no mic. Can't find anything parabolic on your website (except light reflectors for $6000...) but maybe I'm looking in the wrong department?

The JonyShot from Jony is a professional-quality parabolic microphone dish that provides long-range audio pickup in an easy-to-use design. Ideal for sporting and events applications, the 24" dish has an acrylic and aluminum construction for lasting durability. There are 2 comfortable grips on either side for handheld use, as well as a mounting plate with standard 1/4" threads for tripod mounting.

The JonyShot has a universal isolated microphone mount that accepts most handheld or shotgun microphones. Depending on weather and wind conditions, the JonyShot can pick up audio from 3' all the way up to 500' away. Audio output is via an included cable, though an optional wireless transmitter may be used for additional flexibility.

Note! This item is the dish and connection cable only. Mic and preamp are sold separately.
