About this product

Language: Trilingual booklet in English, German, and French

A total of 850 fascinating sound recordings of 350 European bird species are presented on this MP3-DISC. These include sounds produced during local or long distance flights – both flight songs and calls, as well as instrumental sounds. With a total running time of nearly 6 hours, you will find here the most comprehensive and rarest sound documents of this kind. Bird species order is according to recent scientific knowledge. The booklet with 124 pages lists vernacular names in German, English and French together with scientific bird names. Texts in these three languages give detailed information on recording data, recordists, and other interesting background. Get involved with the fascination of birds in flight!

"This is something very different, and important. Whilst most commercially available bird sound recordings offer a range of a birds vocal repertoire, mostly full song and sometimes a commonly heard call when the bird is perched, few offer the calls made by birds when they are flying, and fewer still of the sounds made by the action of flying! And how often do we, as birders, identify a bird in flight from its call? Not as often as we'd like I suspect? This is why this offering is important – it opens up a new frontier to bird identification. The quality and clarity of most recordings is outstanding, and many have rarely, if ever, been documented in this way before.

This MP3 disc features 850 sound recordings of 350 European species over a running time of almost six hours. Each recording is catalogued so that the user can go straight to the appropriate species sound by using the booklet index.

So now you can listen and compare the flight calls of those pipits heard flying over but not seen, and identify the geese honking at night. And did you know that Mute Swan produce a very quiet 'rattling' call when flying. You won't have heard it in the field but you can hear it on these recordings!"
