good audio recordings of most garden bird songs
on 5 July 2009
Songs of Garden Birds covers 52 species of birds that are common in UK gardens or attracted to our gardens by bird feeders.
The quality of most of the records is excellent and many species have several different clips covering song variants such as dawn song and alarm calls.
The booklet with the CD contains notes on each species covered on the CD and their relationship to our gardens. I prefer this to narration on the CD so you can focus on listening to the bird song itself.
I bought this collection to improve the number of birds I could identify by their song. The range of calls and quantity on the CD has greatly improved the chances of me identifying a bird by its song.
The only downside of this CD is the range of species covered is a little limited, e.g. two gulls are included but only one owl.
If you want a good audio guide to most of the garden species then this is a good buy, if you are looking for help to identify a specific bird in your garden then the complete set by the same publisher would be a better bet than this garden collection.
