♫ An Enchanting and Soothing Bird Song ♫

I think the song of the Hermit Thrush is one of my all time favorite bird songs because it so soothing and relaxing to me. I ♥ to hear it in the woods ringing and echoing amongst the trees. A person can drift and lose themselves in a moment of peace when listening to this song. I sometimes listen to it before retiring for the evening just to have something relaxing on my mind before sleep. Here is a link to a web page that has an approximately one minute recording of this beautiful song: Hermit Thrush song

The Birding Life: A Passion for Birds at Home and Afield

Through evocative writing and two hundred gorgeous color photographs, the authors of The Sporting Life and Living with Dogs capture the beauty, intrigue, and fun of birding—at home, in the country, in the city, and out in the field—with a special focus on the nostalgic memorabilia that signals devotion to birds of all kinds.

In Part I: Birders in Birdland, you will meet Alexander Wilson, John James Audubon, and Roger Tory Peterson, the iconic figures responsible for first documenting America’s native birds for the public, and Kenn Kaufman and David Allen Sibley, authors of today’s most well-known American birding guides.

Part II: Bird Houses welcomes you into the homes and studios of bird enthusiasts, artists, and collectors

In Part III: At Home with Birds, you will meet homeowners who have decorated their personal nests to reflect their love of avian life. 

  Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding (Kaufman Field Guides)

The all-new Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding takes a different approach, clarifying the basics and providing a framework for learning about each group. Overall principles of identification are explained in clear language, and ten chapters on specific groups of birds show how these principles can be applied in practice.
