Learn Bird Songs!

As we're getting ready for spring here in the northern hemisphere, it is the perfect time to start birding. I found a nice resource today to help you identify the birds in your neighborhood. Lang Elliott's Learn Bird Songs! provides photographs and recordings of nearly 40 birds common to North America. You can listen to birdsong by habitat (click on the bird pictures to find the audio files) -- countrysides, forests, cityscapes, and wetlands -- or pick a species from the main page, like Blue Jay Song and Sounds. Be sure to check out How to Learn Bird Songs for tips on memorizing the sounds made by different birds and enjoy the sounds of spring!
