Summary
Is their song a language? If so, what do they say? Kroodsma (ornithology emeritus, U. of Massachusetts) focuses on only a few of the ten thousand species of singing birds on this earth, but by doing so he thoroughly explains the basics in these 30 personal journeys over 30 years. He explains how, when and where birds sing, starting with birds we hear daily. He then examines how songs develop through learning, mimicry, or some more mysterious means, how dialects develop, why some males sing spectacularly complex and beautiful songs, even on the wing, and even why a few females join in. Kroodsma provides beautiful line drawings, sonograms that are just as beautiful, and a CD with 98 birdsongs, including a cross-species moment between a child and a baby wren in mutual learning and appreciation.
