RSPB Guide to Birdsong

Adrian Thomas

Birdsong is one of the greatest and most accessible wildlife pleasures that people can experience, even in urban areas. This book and accompanying CD will help people identify a range of common and charismatic British birds by sound.

Birdsong is one of the most powerful means of connecting people with nature. Wild sounds in nature have the power to lift people's spirits; they have inspired poets and composers and can evoke time, place and season. Wild sounds can also carry powerful conservation messages - the reduction in birdsong in our countryside is a potent signal and a symbol of the loss of nature. The success of Radio 4's 'Tweet of the Day' series speaks to the popularity of and interest in birdsong.

The reality, however, is that many people don't understand or recognise what they are listening to in nature. This beautiful, full-colour book and narrated CD of brand new recordings will help people to learn about the sounds and calls of the commonest birds in Britain, and reveal when and why birds make these sounds. 256 pages.
