About this book

Geoff Sample, author of the best-selling Field Guide to Bird Songs and Calls, provides an audio guide to the bird songs you hear in gardens and parks.

Garden Bird Songs and Calls includes over 60 minutes of digitally recorded sound and covers 40 of the most common and vocal garden birds. Each recording is introduced by the author with a voice-over that gives a brief interpretation of the song or call.

The book contains details of each recording and also gives useful advice on how to listen to and interpret the sounds you hear.

If you would like to be able to identify the birds in your garden by sound rather than by sight then this is the guide for you.

Re-issue, originally published in 2000.
