About this book

We can hear birdsongs anywhere, whether we live in the city or in the country. Without the musical backdrop provided by our feathered friends, our gardens, parks, woods and fields would be relatively silent – and much the poorer for it.

Often we hear their calls, but cannot see the birds making them. This easy-to use package of book and CD offers insight into the secret world of birds. The CD features 90 tracks of bird songs and calls of species commonly found in gardens all over Australia.

Each audio track is numbered to coincide with Backyard Bird Songs for quick reference. Backyard Bird Songs also presents full-colour photographs of the birds, distribution maps and interesting text about their habits, feeding and nesting routines, as well as their calls.

Invaluable for birders of all ages and abilities, this CD and book opens up a new way of recognizing birds and understanding their behaviour, and can be the start of an abiding interest in these most tuneful of our fellow inhabitants.

A guide for bird enthusiasts of all ages, both expert and beginner. Ideal for home use or birding excursions.
