LITTLE BOOK OF WETLAND BIRD SOUNDS


LITTLE BOOK OF WETLAND BIRD SOUNDS

A. PINNINGTON & C. BUCKINGHAM    Book Number: 86682    Product format: Unknown

Produced in association with the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust (WWT), the leading conservation charity that protects, preserves and promotes wildlife and wetlands, this amazing book includes 12 buttons to bring the sounds of the wetlands to life. Water birds make some of the most unusual and haunting of all bird sounds, from the wistful cry of the curlew to the trumpet-like call of the crane. On big board tough card pages, a large illustration of each bird is reproduced on the right hand side and description, habitat, food, nest, eggs, adult and length given on the opposite page with a background colour evocative image of their natural habitat. The teal (Anas crecca) has a sharp whistle and form nimble and noisy flocks, flying rapidly and taking off almost vertically. "Did You Know?" fact boxes are given and, in this case the male teal performs head-bowing courtship displays in early spring to impress females. Press the button alongside the page in the panel to the right of the book to hear his sound. The black-throated diver, avocet, oyster catcher, mallard, lapwing with its beautiful rainbow plumage, kingfisher with his unmistakable flash of electric blue, the noisy aggressive coot and the remarkable sound of the mute swan with his honking to attract a mate can all be played here. Simply pull away the plastic strip to begin. Includes 3 x 1.5v removable and replaceable batteries.
