BIRD SONG IDENTIFICATION

Acknowledgements

 

First I recognize the Xeno-Canto Website which allows bird recordists from all over the world to upload and share their recordings, to the benefit of the rest of us who have ready access to this myriad of bird songs. I encourage all those interested in bird song to visit this site: http://www.xeno-canto.org/.

It was through this site that I was able to contact several recordists, who then allowed me to use a selection from among their recordings on my own  website. I have listed these recordings below, along with the recordists. For those who may be interested I have also included a link to each of their personal websites. There you can view their many and varied approaches to studying and appreciating birds and bird song.
