||Learning Bird Songs and Calls
Learning to identify birds by their songs
is an important and enjoyable aspect of birding.
You can learn the different songs of birds
by getting a CD or cassette study course.
We highly recommend Richard Walton's extraordinary
Birding by Ear series. Walton's spoken commentary is lively
and witty, making this course as fun as it
is educational. He offers memory aids that
really work. The Birding by Ear and More Birding by Ear courses cover 86 and 97 species, respectively,
that appear east of the Mississippi.
volume in the series covers 91
(some of these also appear in
the prior two
volumes). Each course comes with
that is a valuable reference
tool. If you
hear a bird and can recall Walton's
of the song into a catchy phrase,
cannot remember the species,
will help you make the identification.
