Birding by Ear, Eastern-Central Audio CD in an ingenious 3 cd set that uses an educational and entertaining method for learning bird songs. It is a guide to bird song identification, rather than a strict field guide of bird songs.
Instead of merely providing a catalog of bird song samples, Birding by Ear actually teaches. This proven method has greatly enhanced the field experience for birders across North America, and increased our ability to id bird calls 100%.
It’s like taking your own private class on how to listen to bird calls. The authors give auditory clues to help you remember the calls. For example, “who cooks for you″ is one call of a Barred Owl.
The authors have created learning groups of similar vocalizations and clearly point out distinguishing characteristics. Using techniques such as phonetics, mnemonics, and descriptive words, Walton and Lawson provide a context for learning the songs and calls of eighty-five species of birds found east of the Rockies.
- Combine the auditory instruction here with the visual features of any field guide, and you will be identifying birds by their calls in no time.
- Comes with a 62 page booklet.
- Learn to identify the calls of 85 birds.
