Collins Bird Songs and Calls

£200.00

Product description

A unique beginner's guide to bird song with 3 CDs of crystal-clear digital recordings and a comprehensive guide to identifying more complex songs and calls.The new Collins Bird Songs and Calls includes re-recorded versions of the original habitat CDs - ensuring that they are even clearer, but just as atmospheric - introducing the user to the major bird habitats of Britain and the birds that live in them. This new edition also features a third CD containing a unique guide to identifying more complex songs and calls, with tips on what aspects of the song or call are the distinguishing characteristics. Beginning with simple, similar-sounding songs, it gradually moves through more difficult distinctions and on to a comprehensive section on passerine calls. Species that often occur in the same habitat are treated together. An accompanying full-colour guide explores the historical background to how recordings of bird songs and calls have developed and been appreciated over the years along with species accounts of the behaviour of all of our common birds.

In original cellophane wrapper.
