A first book of New Zealand Backyard Bird songs by Fred Van Gessel
This beautifully illustrated sound guide is the perfect way to introduce both children and adults to the wonders of bird song. Each of the 12 species covered- Morepork, kaka, Sacred Kingfisher, Grey Warbler, Silvereye, Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starling- has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about the bird. The reader can then press the relevant button on the side panel and a 30 second burst of the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker.
Aimed mainly at children this is perfect for anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world and listening to the songs and calls of our familiar backyard birds.
Highly respected author Fred Van Gessel has been recording bird sounds for more than 40 years, building up a huge knowledge of the subject during that time.
