  • Songs of Love & War: The Dark Heart of Bird Behaviour
    Songs of Love & War: The Dark Heart of… by Dominic Couzens

    The dawn chorus: a single voice cutting through the darkness heralds a breaking wave of sound at the very beginning of the day. It is an iconic natural phenomenon with many familiar performers, yet it is a mysterious event for which there is no complete explanation. A mass of starlings gathers at the end of a midwinter day. As the sun sets, wave upon wave of bodies rolls in, embarking upon another of nature's great attempts to show off. The murmuration is another much admired spectacle, but again its purpose is obscure and defies our understanding. From dawn until dusk, birds do things that that are surprising and mystifying. Songs of Love & War delves into bird behaviour and uncovers its purpose and meaning. More than just an inside look at how songbirds behave, this book also represents a personal journey of discovery. What starts as a desire to learn more about the birds encountered on a regular father-and-son walk through the woods leads to a realisation that a bird's life is very far from the idyllic scene that can often be glimpsed by the casual birdwatcher. A bird's life is often unusual and surprising but above all it is brief and much darker than you might think.

    Teach Yourself Bird Sounds Double CD by Dominic Couzens, John Wyatt

    by Dominic Couzens / John Wyatt

    The original Teach Yourself Bird Sounds series was published in the 1990s as a series of ten cassettes, each featuring a different habitat. This overdue CD version begins with the two habitats that are closest to home for most birdwatchers, the garden (with 21 featured species) and broad-leaved woodland (with 24 featured species).

    Designed to help you identify the bird songs and calls and with commentary throughout, this is very much a tutorial. For each of the 45 species, a detailed spoken commentary takes you through what is distinctive about each song or call featured, with one or more repetitions to help you learn it thoroughly.
