Fascinating stories about birdsong for every week of the year.

Leading bird expert Dominic Couzens takes us on a journey around the world to enjoy an authentic year of birdsong, from the influence of the blackbird’s song on classical music to the amazing imitations of the lyrebird. A myriad of topics are covered, including bird nature and behavior, literature inspired by birdsong, the musicality of the sounds, and what different songs communicate. The fifty-two entries are illustrated by award-winning artist Madeleine Floyd and come with a QR code to let readers listen to the birdsong.
