Whether you're 5 years old or 65, it's never too late to get to know the feathered friends in your backyard, and learning their songs will open your eyes to a whole new world. Therefore this beautifully illustrated sound guide is the perfect way to introduce both children and adults to the wonders of bird song. Each of the 12 species covered - Tawny Frogmouth, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Rainbow Lorikeet, Laughing Kookaburra, Superb Fairywren, Noisy Miner, Pied Butcherbird, Australian Magpie, Pied Currawong, Willie Wagtail, Silvereye and Welcome Swallow - has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about that bird. Then the reader can press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a 30-second burst of the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker.
