About this product

Marvel at the sounds of a Shropshire Jay that neighs like a horse and a Blackbird in London that imitates a computer modem. From the world's largest collection of nature sounds (held at the British Library), this CD features some of the rarest recordings ever captured - it includes 26 tracks of incredible avian imitations.
