Crisply detailed and scientifically accurate illustrations accompany each vivid description of their songs, calls and related behaviors. Complete with up-to-date range maps that provide clear geographical reference points as well as 125 sounds provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. This book offers an introduction to birdsongs that will inspire readers to look out their kitchen windows and venture out into the field; this unique book provides an exciting entryway into the subtle art of birding.
