“This song guide can be a companion to a field guide,
preparation for a birding trip, or the key to identifying the early-riser heard
every morning outside the bedroom window. The format is simple but
comprehensive: famous birding couple Donald and Lillian Stokes name a bird, and
its characteristic calls follow. An accompanying pamphlet describes what each
call signifies and where the bird song was recorded. Praise should go to the
intrepid recorders, who no doubt faced many challenges capturing their prey on tape.
The result is a lovely collection, best savored in small portions.”
