I've been listening to the predecessor of "More Birding by Ear," i.e. "Birding by Ear (Eastern and Central North America)" for over a year now, and the music-processing regions in my brain are finally sorting the symphony of bird song in the woods and swamps around our house into individual melodies. I strongly recommend that you start with Walton and Lawson's "Birding by Ear" as it has recorded the songs and calls of eighty-five common species. "More Birding by Ear" provides recordings of ninety-six additional Eastern and Central North American species, many of them, such as the shore birds, not often heard outside of their specialized habitats.

For most people, bird calls may produce nothing more than a song that is hard to get out of the head. These two three-CD sets will help them make sense of those songs. I was so encouraged by the calls I had learned from these CDs that I signed up as a volunteer for the Michigan Breeding Bird Atlas. So far I've identified forty-one birds in my 'priority block,' many of them by song alone.

I don't know whether I'll actually ever see a Red-eyed Vireo, an Oven Bird, or a Veery but I hear them almost every day now, calling from the forest canopy or deep in the swamp, or echoing eerily down the river at dusk.

Yet oddly enough, once I've identified a bird call on the CD, such as "More Birding by Ear's" Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, I begin to see Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers everywhere. Location by song must be giving my eyes a kick start. Now I'm beginning to suspect they're one of the commonest woodpeckers in our neighborhood!

The narrative that accompanies the bird song on these CDs will both entertain and inform you.

Most birdsong CDs/tapes are lengthy "lists" of birdsongs. The "Birding by Ear" series is a unique tutorial that teaches you to recognise and recall birdsongs. If you want to learn to identify birds by their songs and calls this is the product for you! "More Birding by Ear" includes many of the Eastern warblers as well as shorebirds, flycatchers, rails and other groups.

this CD is perfect, it is a compliment to Birding by Ear and having both of these is invaluable to learning the calls of the birds I see and hear in my area. I had heard the CD at my local Audabon shop and almost bought them there, Amazon was $10. cheaper and I bought both CD's. They are a joy to listen to and are very helpful to me.

I purchased the Birding by Ear cd collection as well as this one. I prefer the first, simply because it features more of my favorite bird friends; however, this, like the first one, is set up in a very easy to listen to and learn manner. Very soothing voice along with the song bird calls and songs - how can you go wrong?

I had already purchased the set for Western Birds, and found this also a good addition to my library. These CD's are essential for one who loves to bird by ear, or is getting ready to hit the East coast, and are unfamiliar with many of the calls.......good purchase for me!

If you love listening to birdsong, this sequel to Birding by Ear is a must. First, I loved the first CD, Birding by Ear. The narrator takes you through many common birdsongs and gives you a handle on how to remember the song. I can now, for example, hear a Broadwinged Hawk before I ever see it; that is just one example of the skill one can obtain from listening to Birding by Ear. More Birding By Ear goes one step further than the first series; it gives you songs of coveted species of birds - birds such as Henslow's Sparrows, Northern and Louisiana Waterthrushes, Black and Yellow Rails - birds that are harder to find, elusive, or a challenge when making a visual ID. The narrator is superb - clear, concise, easy to remember; he makes what could be difficult simple. I simply love this CD - it is an indespensible tool!
