New (27 June 2010): I have now created an affiliate account on amazon.com, with a selection of bird books from around the world. A small portion of the sales will returned to me, so please do not hesitate to support my web sites. You can browse or purchase those items by clicking on any of the book icons on the right hand-side bar, or simply by visiting my custom shopping page . I have also created a wish-list of books I would love, in case anyone wants to show their appreciation. You can also visit Avibase , a detailed website that allows you to find information, maps, images and sounds for all 10,000 bird species of the world. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Webmaster Notes: The pages shown depicting the official 50 US State birds were drawn from : " " an 1840 "First Octavo Edition" of John J. Audubon's complete seven volume text.
On these pages are the sounds of North American birds (Costa Rican birds have their own page, below) - not just bird calls or bird songs, but all the sounds birds make, such as wing sounds and bill rattles. Since most bird species use different vocalizations for different circumstances, I've tried to tell you what the bird was doing at the time of the recording. It has become even more obvious to me during this project that a bird's vocalizations can be nearly as complex in the information they contain as our own. Individuals of a species sing different songs with different "words" and "phrases" than another individual, and the same species from different territories sing about different things in different ways. One of my ongoing trials is what to call the sounds birds make.
