This book and CD combination is a treasure for bird lovers, especially lovers of song birds native to North America.

The full page photos of 50 native birds, with one page description of each of the birds' calls and habits, plus the accompanying Audio CD with his gentle voice and unassuming tone, Lang Elliott introduces us to the world of beautiful music in nature, made by the commonly identifiable North American birds.
