  • Features numerous pencil drawings and full-color photos and includes an hour-long audio CD

    As anyone who has been captivated by the sounds of an evening outdoors knows, the nightly music of the woods can be a lovely but bewildering mix of hoots, croaks, howls, and grunts. This handy collection of field recordings and species descriptions helps you to identify the various members of the nocturnal chorus, from crickets and owls to otters, porcupines, and alligators. Illustrated with gorgeous pencil drawings and full-color photographs, it's the perfect complement to the sounds of the night.

    About the Author:

    Lang Elliott is the owner of NatureSound Studio, a wildlife recording company based in Ithaca, New York.

    From Publishers Weekly:

    For country lovers and city-dwellers alike, Elliott presents this wonderful guide to the sounds animals make at night. Recorded at his company, NatureSound Studio in Ithaca, New York, this guidebook–CD compilation includes an hour’s worth of bird calls (from thrushes to herons to owls), alligators growls, frog croaks and various mammal noises. He narrates each one of the more than 60 animals in a soothing, Mr. Roger’s inflected voice: e.g. "among my favorite mammalian sounds are the barks, yips and howls of the coyote"; "there’s the forest dwelling whip-poor-will, whose whistled notes spring forth from Eastern forests just as thrush songs fade away"; "the woodcock... a plump, rather silly looking bird with a long fleshy beak that it uses to probe in moist ground for earthworms at night." While listening to these sounds—clear and distinct—one can flip through the book to view pencil drawings and color photos (not seen by PW) of each animal. In all, Elliott has compiled a sweet, concise nature guide.
