This review is from: Birdsong: 150 British and Irish birds and their amazing sounds (Hardcover)
You could be forgiven for thinking this book format seems a bit 'gimmicky', but it really isn't; it's a lovely hardback item, with lots of great photographs and written info on each bird. The audio content for each bird is basically a bonus, but it brings the book to life. Excellent idea.
Our neighbour has rescue animals brought to her all the time. Recently someone gave her some very young chicks which had fallen out of a tree nest in high winds. She had no idea what species the chicks were, but they simply would not gape for her when she tried feeding them. She suspected they were finches, so she used this book to go through some of the songs, played the Goldfinch call and hey presto! Unfortunately for her that meant a punishing routine of feeding and cleaning every hour...
