The Little Book of Woodland Bird Songs
Being able to identify a bird's song is a skill that brings joy and fosters an appreciation of nature. Some bird songs are distinctive and easily recognized, like the common loon and wild turkey. Hawks as a group are distinctive but the individual species vary, as do the owls. Picking up the songs of a Black-capped Chickadee and a White-breasted Nuthatch, however, is not easy. That is where this enchanting book comes into its own.
The Little Book of Woodland Bird Songs features recordings of twelve bird songs from some of the best-known woodland species seen and heard in North America. It is an interactive board book that is ideal for curious young readers. The sturdy pages are easy to turn and the twelve song buttons, each with a portrait of the bird, are easy to activate. The high-quality sound module is encased in durable plastic and the one-inch (3-cm) speaker makes it easy to hear and differentiate the elements of the bird's song, such as pitch, tempo and trills.
Beautiful lifelike illustrations aid in identifying the birds and a descriptive paragraph and facts panel provide information such as the time of day the bird is likely to sing, what it eats, behavior traits and how it constructs its nest.
All twelve birds have winter or summer ranges in the United States or Canada. This means that readers are sure to see most if not all the birds in at least one season over the year.
Birds: Red Crossbill, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Hermit Thrush, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Black-capped Chickadee, Purple Finch, Common Loon Barred Owl, Red-eyed Vireo, Wild Turkey, White-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker.
Birds can be hard to spot at the best of times and never more so than in the woods. Once you learn to recognize these bird sounds, a walk through the forest will never be the same. This partner to The Little Book of Backyard Bird Songs is sure to become another family favorite.
