Reader's note

A 1973 edition of Witherby's Sound Guide to British Birds by Myles North and Eric Simms, introduced by James Fisher. This long-play edition features the songs and calls of 194 species on two 12" double-sided records. These will be found beneath the tray, which holds the book.The first record covers 113 species of the Non-Passerines, or larger birds, and is distinguished by a blue label; the second, with a red label, is devoted to 81 species of the Passerines, or smaller birds. On the back of each sleeve is a reference table which provides a quick guide to the birds according to the bands on the record sides. The preliminary pages in the book give more detailed advice on how to use the sound-guide to the best advantage. The main aim of the book itself is to produce helpful notes for the identification of birds by their songs and calls, and the indexing of both English and scientific names refers to the record numbers as well as to the text pages.
