Product description

Review

Most of us can see, but not everyone looks. Most of us can hear, but not everyone listens. This book will help you do both. And, above all, it will tell you how to enjoy. --Bill Oddie

A gem... All day, I've been fighting the urge to drop everything so I can devour this eloquent book in one siting... exquisite --The Guardian

He'll tune your ears to winter's lonely voices - robins, wrens, long-tailed tits - before preparing you for the exultant sounds of spring --The Times

Become a bird listener, says Barnes, and tune in to the special podcast of airborne song that comes free with this book, and you will better understand the lives of birds and identify the wild notes that first inspired human music. A delight. --Iain Finlayson, Saga

A beguiling love song to our feathered friends. Brilliant. --Rosemary Goring, Glasgow Herald

An excellent book from the irrepressible Simon Barnes... a must-buy for any birdwatcher. --The Times

Do you struggle with identifying birds by song? Yes? Good! Then there's a delightful journey, just waiting for you thanks to this book... This spring should be a special one for you. --Birds Magazine

He'll tune your ears to winter's lonely voices - robins, wrens, long-tailed tits - before preparing you for the exultant sounds of spring --The Times

This is very good indeed. Barnes's approach is humorous, chatty and pragmatic... He can't do the listening for you, but boy, does he help you sharpen your ears --Irish Times
