Review Don Kroodsma's passion for birdsong is infectious, and this guide will have any birder (including me) listening to birds with new insight and appreciation after reading it." - David Allen Sibley, author and illustrator of The Sibley Guide to Birds "Watching birds is only half the fun-knowing how to listen to them is the other half. This handy audio book teaches you how to listen to birds and to understand who they are and what they are saying to each other. It will double your enjoyment-both outdoors and indoors." - Greg Butcher, National Audubon Society "There is no better guide to the fascinating world of birdsong than Don Kroodsma, who in this handy book shows that even in the average backyard there is drama, mystery, and excitement, all bound up in the song of a bird." - Scott Weidensaul, author of Living on the Wind and Of a Feather "Don Kroodsma's latest book is a gem. Each page brims with enthusiasm and erudition, the product of countless hours spent in 'deep listening'-applying the attentiveness and aesthetic appreciation of a musician to the songs and calls of birds. Even advanced students of birdsong will find much that is new in these pages-and refreshingly well composed!" - Ned Brinkley, Editor, North American Birds "Don Kroodsma once again gives us a reason to listen to birds as individuals. What a gift to all birders to be able to listen to these birds with new ears." - Bill Thompson, III, Editor, Bird Watcher's Digest "With his trademark clarity and charm, Donald Kroodsma takes us beyond identification and into the realm of understanding. What are the different functions of the multiple songs given by many birds? How do songs differ among individuals? And what causes those differences? These are cutting-edge scientific questions, and it is to Kroodsma's credit that he provides compelling and easily understood answers." - Ted Floyd, Editor, Birding " From the Inside Flap GET TO KNOW BIRDS BY EAR WITH THIS ENGAGING, ONE-OF-A-KIND BOOK Discover seventy-five unique birds from Eastern and Central North America as you enjoy their sounds at the touch of a button—reproduced in high quality on the attached digital audio module—while reading vivid descriptions of their songs, calls, and related behaviors.
