An incredible 923 species from all of North America are included in this marvelous audio companion to the best-selling Stokes Field Guides.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
The recordings in this book would be fantastic, if there were any way to find the one you're looking for! Individual tracks within the book are not labeled in any way, so it's impossible to locate and listen to the recording of a specific bird. In addition, the tracks on the Audible recording are cut differently than the tracks listed on the PDF booklet that comes with them, so you won't find any help there either. Please, Audible, if you are going to offer reference material at all, do the work to make it auseful.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?
What do you think your next listen will be?
a literary novel, I hope.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This isn't really a story- just bird songs, but if you purchased the CD set, you would get all of the same sounds and information.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Well, I did get to listen to the birds...
Any additional comments?
I would recommend that you purchase the book on the CD boxed set. That's what I will have to do. Then, once it is imported into iTunes, I'll be able to identify each bird track and play only that one. Since this comes in a different format, it does not import to iTunes as tracks, but chapters...with no track titles. So, it would be a nightmare to try to find one bird individually. I had really hoped that this would be a good deal, but for my purpose, it's useless.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I was hoping this would be like Peterson's Birding By Ear series, but it was nearly as detailed.
