World's Best Birdsongs: The Songs and Calls of 70 Iconic Species

Hannu Jännes

Listening to birdsong gives a huge amount of pleasure to people all around the world. But which species are the most melodious and produce the best songs? Expert sound-recordist and bird tour guide Hannu Jännes has travelled the world in search of birds and is uniquely qualified to decide.

This beautifully illustrated and very useful book and audio CD combination brings together 70 of the most remarkable species from around the world. Each has at least one photograph, along with descriptions of key ID features, habitat and distribution, as well as details of the songs and calls which can be heard on the corresponding CD audio track. The CD incorporates hundreds of recordings of bird sounds from all over the world, which have been accumulated over a period of many decades.

Species covered include the melodious high-quality tunes of the Nightingale and Hermit Thrush, the splendid mimicry of the Superb Lyrebird and the quirky 'cork-popping' of the Capercaillie, to mention just a few.

This will be an essential addition to the bookshelves of birdwatchers of all levels. And it will provide ideal inspiration for readers to get out of bed early and take in the next dawn chorus! 160 pages.
