This wire-bound directory depicts 100 of the most popular songbirds of North America through images, detailed descriptions, and song. Beautiful painted illustrations show each bird's distinctive colors and plumage, accompanied by information on their origin, behavior, feeding, and migration habits. The guide also includes an audio CD of birdsongs from the Macaulay Library of Cornell University's Laboratory of Ornithology to help you identify the calls heard in your backyard, and simple visual notations in the book denote the rhythmic rise and fall of the songs. Discover how and why birds sing, their wide range of tones and melodies, where to find particular birds, and how to attract them to your own backyard.
