Birds, Birds, Birds! An Indoor Birdwatching Field Trip
« : June 08, 2008, 08:34:43 AM »
This DVD which is viewable on PC's and DVD players combines visual identification with song identification.  There are a number of "birding by ear" CD's available that help beginning and intermediate birders learn calls & songs.  Don't get me wrong -- these ARE excellent resources.  But, I'm convinced that combining the visual image WITH bird calls & songs is more effective in "burning" the image and song in the birders mind.

This DVD has an index where you can tab through birds alphabetically, but what I find most helpful are the various quizzes (16 of them) that test your ID skills.  ($24.95 at Amazon as of June 2008)
