Field Guide to the Bird Songs and Calls of Britain and Northern Europe (Book & CD) (Hardcover)

It has always been notoriously difficult to identify birds by their call or song and complicated and baffling sonograms don’t give much help.
Yet bird sounds are a critical aspect of accurate identification, with many species camouflaged,

skulking or flying overhead against the sun making simple visual identification almost impossible at times.

In woodland, for example, the majority of encounters with birds are by sound alone.

Furthermore, some species are secretive by nature, and their call or song can be the only way of locating and accurately identifying them!
This book is a major breakthrough in that it not only describes bird sound in a simple and understandable way,
but also includes two accompanying bird song and call CDs,
providing all the detail you need in order to confidently identify 200 different species over a wide variety of habitats.

Each species is fully illustrated - showing details such as sexual variance and flight -
by Brin Edwards, an award-winning artist with a distinctive and contemporary style.

All birds are described with full identification detail and have examples of habitat and distribution as well as those all-important calls and song.
