    A reviewer

    I enjoyed this book as I am an avid birdwatcher and sometimes can't see the bird making the music. It contains some of the most common songs that can be easily identified. I would recomend it for anyone who loves the songs and wants to get to know the singers a little better.

    Most popular holiday gift!

    I had a hard time wrapping this book and giving it away. It was just too much fun! We got this book for my father and my husband's grandmother. It was a hit both places. In fact, my brothers and uncles want one, too. The sound is great, there are so many different songs that getting bored is almost impossible. The descriptions of the songs are colorful and entertaining. I could not be happier. Even my parakeets found a couple of the recordings made good conversationalists!

    I love my yard birds

    I love this book, and so does my cat. It gives me the chance to hear and learn the common bird songs from my own yard. I enjoy this book and would recommend it as a gift for nature lovers or those who love birds. I keep it right on the coffie table, so it is available when I want to know which bird is singing it's lovely song.

    Heard but not seen!

    Handy resource for the backyard bird watcher. You often hear a bird before you see it and the audio feature helps you know how to visually identify the bird.

    This is a gift for my mother.

    I bought this book for my mother (who loves birds), I haven't give it to her yet. I like it so well I will probably order myself one.

    A great resource and learning tool

    My 4 year old granddaughter and I both love this book. She loves hearing the bird sounds and learning the names of the birds. I enjoy being able to identify the birds coming into our feeder, especially those that are migrating that are not as familiar to me.
