Birding by Ear Eastern Central Audio CD opened our eyes to the world of bird song 25 years ago. We had one of the authors come to Madison to do an in person class, and we were amazed at how much we learned. This CD is ground breaking, and as valuable today as it was 25 years ago.

Birding by Ear Eastern Central Audio CD uses an educational and entertaining method for learning bird songs. Instead of merely providing a catalog of bird song samples, Birding by Ear actually teaches in a fun and easy to absorb way.

Published by Houghton Mifflin in the esteemed Peterson Field Guide catalog in 2002, this valuable mini course will open up the world of bird calls for everyone! This proven method has greatly enhanced the field experience for birders across North America.

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. Follow along with your favorite field guide and combine the auditory instruction here with the visual features in your book.

Page numbers in Birding by Ear’s accompanying booklet refer to species descriptions in the Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America, but any field guide will do.

If you’re looking for recordings of all of the birds in your particular region of the US, the Stokes Field Guide to Birdsongs Eastern or Stokes Field Guide to Birdsongs Western are excellent.
