This is especially handy for reviewing songs of birds that I hear only during spring migration, such as many of the warblers that travel farther north to nest in the Boreal Forest. It also allows studying of differences in the similar songs of closely related species, such as the Red-eyed Vireo and the Yellow-throated Vireo. I especially like how the page references are given for each song; the pages are referring to the entries in the fifth edition of the companion field guide. I have given this several times as a much appreciated gift set with the accompanying field guide.
