Birdsong through the Seasons is a party of birdsong from January via December. The tales commence with a pileated woodpecker on New Year's Day; they spread in the course of the 12 months, overlaying limpkins and scrub-jays in February in Florida, prairie birds in may well, Scarlet Tanagers in July, and finishing with a refrain of making a song birds in Massachusetts in advance of Christmas. Readers get contained in the brain of a scientist and spot how solutions simply result in extra questions. Kroodsma presents a special adventure: together with his light information, the pairing of sonagrams with the audio makes birdsong obtainable and fascinating.
