Drawing from the collection of the world-renowned Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, "Bird Songs" presents the most notable North American birdsincluding the rediscovered Ivory-billed Woodpeckerin a stunning new format. Renowned bird biologist Les Beletsky provides a succinct description of each of the 250 birds profiled, with an emphasis on their distinctive songs. Lavish full-color illustrations accompany each account, while a sleek, built-in digital audio player holds 250 corresponding songs and calls. In his foreword, North American bird expert and distinguished natural historian Jon L. Dunn shares insights gained from a lifetime of passionate study. Complete with the most up-to-date and scientifically accurate information, "Bird Songs" is the first book to capture the enchantment of these beautiful birds in words, pictures, and song. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, located in Ithaca, New York, is a nonprofit institution focused on birds and whose mission is to interpret and conserve the earth's biological diversity through research. The Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab is the major source of sound recordings of birds for research, education, conservation, the media, and commercial products.

This book is difficult to find but not impossible. The prices are insanely high elsewhere, but not here. The book was new, the shipping very fast, and the price very low. An excellent transaction.

Great Book Terrible Source
Bought as a gift for a wheelchair bound young adult. Having my own copy of the magnificent book , it was just the thing. However, he never got to enjoy it, as the packing was minimal, leaving it exposed to the rain when delivered. HPB-Ohio was a fialure!

terrific resource for birders
I've bought 2 of these, and they're terrific. Nice pictures and descriptions plus you get to hear the actual chirps for each bird. Only drawback is the index... has very faint colored print, plus print font is way too small. Just make sure you have your magnifying glass with you!
