The Backyard Birdsong Guide Eastern and Central North America by Donald Kroodsma
The Backyard Birdsong Guide Eastern and Central North America is an interactive handbook of birds and their songs for beginning bird-watchers. With a touch-button electronic module housing common vocalizations of 75 species from Eastern and Central North America, this volume offers a truly sensory way to identify and get to know local birds. Crisply detailed and scientifically accurate illustrations accompany each entry, and up-to-date range maps provide clear geographical reference points. Complete with an introduction to birdsongs that will inspire readers to look out their kitchen windows and venture out in the field, this unique book provides an exciting entryway into the subtle art of birding. This second edition includes a much-requested new Sound Trak Index (to help make watching and listening to birds easier), and a free download of the Cornell Lab's own MERLIN Bird ID App (on iTunes and Android stores).
