"The Stokeses are birding's first family." - Birding Business
This is the ultimate audio field guide for today's birder- the most comprehensive, clearest, most useful audio identification guide to the birds of the Western region ever produced.
Now updated for modern convenience in the field !As a special bonus, one MP3 CD is included, containing all the bird sound files with voice narration removed for use on your MP3 device.
Never before has such an extensive collection of western American bird sounds been made available to the birding public. I hope you will enjoy the sounds of these 552 species, including dozens of species and subspecies heard NOWHERE else. Birding from Brownsville, to Barrow, and in your own backyard will become a richer experience as you learn the sounds of these wonderful birds. The only species I hoped to present but could not were Mountain Plover, Sabine's gull, Cravieri's murrelet, and McKay's Bunting. (BTW the reviewer from OR will be relieved to know that the Red-naped Sapsucker voice was indeed labeled correctly, no mistaken ID.)
About the Author:
Kevin J. Colver has recorded the sounds of nature in digital clarity for many years. His personal collection of over 400 species of bird vocalizations was the foundation to which recordings from a team of noted international recordists were added to produce, by far, the most complete library of western American bird sounds ever published.
