I found this CD a little below what I was expecting from the British Library Collection . Each example was very short and did not give me the time to absorb the individual song .

As an enthusiastic beginner I've found this invaluable! Now many of the common birds have a voice I can associate with a face, which makes a walk a much more rewarding experience.

Note, this review has been edited in light of a significant mistake in the original review as noted in the comments. The quality of the recording is good but the main downside is that with 175 species covered there are some omissions mainly of rarer species that could potentially be found in song in the UK (e.g. Serin) plus I suspect that not all call notes are covered. As a starter guide it's worth buying but beyond that something more comprehensive is probably required.

Just what I wanted for car trips! Each bird is named at the start of every track, so you can train your ear on the way to your local woods and wetlands etcetera

A very good CD with very clear bird calls, would have liked introduction to identify each of the different calls of each bird, i.e.:- general and alarm.

My grandson is learning how to recognise different bird sounds. This CD is just the job for helping kids or adults recognise bird sounds

I use these for Romeo & Juliet and any literary reference to a bird that American students don't know. Broadens the spectrum, 'ya know
