This is a re-issue of the 2008 publication.
Back by popular demand with more than 300,000 copies sold, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is proud to re-release the widely acclaimed and bestselling bird audio field guide series, Backyard Birdsongs, from award-winning ornithologist and author Donald Kroodsma.
The Backyard Birdsong Guide 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 across western 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 Track Index (to help make watching and listening to birds easier).
And as with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, 25% of the net proceeds from the sale of the Backyard Birdsong Guides supports projects at the Cornell Lab, such as children’s educational and community programs
