Bird songs and bird calls are featured on this CD created by John Feith. The Bird Song Ear Training Guide: Who Cooks for Poor Sam Peabody? CD will help you learn how to recognize bird songs and calls. It features the sounds of 189 different bird species found in the Midwest and Northeast States. The digital bird song recordings were made in Wisconsin.
Each bird song recording is followed by a short description of the sound along with a common mnemonic used to remember it. Many well-known song mnemonics such as "Who cooks for you?" for the Barred Owl and "Poor Sam Peabody" for the White-throated Sparrow are included. Following the song and mnemonic, the source of the sound is revealed. By naming the bird at the end of each track, the listener is allowed to wonder and guess at the nature of the sound. Active listening, similar to what one experiences in the field while searching for an unknown bird song, is a key to engaging the memory process. The total running time is 60 minutes. It is a great gift for any birdwatcher, beginner or advanced.
