Each Spring millions of people leave the confines of their homes, towns and cities and move into the great out-of-doors. This album captures some of the sounds they can expect to hear in the woodlands and fields of Wisconsin.
You are introduced to 28 or more common birds through their songs. In the average field trip many more birds will be heard than seen which shows the value of recognizing their melodies.
Because of the time limit on this record, many bird songs had to be eliminated. It is hoped, however, that this record will serve as your beginning in the study of ornithology. John D. Curnow, a high school biology instructor, became interested in recording bird songs while attending summer sessions at the Wisconsin State University’s biological field station at Pigeon Lake in Northern Wisconsin.
Special thanks is given to Shirley Curnow and J.F. Trojan for their assistance on the recordings trips and in the production of this record.
