WILD BIRD SONGS: VOLUME ONE
by Ed and Ann Boyes
Ed and Ann Boyes HO8P-7034 Circa 1956
SONGS AND SOUNDS OF NATURE
WILD BIRD SONGS
The songs of native birds reproduced in this first volume of "Wild bird Songs," are in response to hundreds of requests by Audubon groups, garden clubs, youth and other organizations and many individuals interested in the out-of-doors. Songs of 51 species are included.
Reproduced exactly as recorded in the wild, no attempt has been made to avoid those with natural background sound, as we feel it adds to the pleasure of the listener as well as helping in identification of habitat.
To allow more time for individual songs, only short common identification is given before each species. Where desired, comprehensive data may easily be obtained from the many fine field and nature books now on the market.
17 songs of the Warbler family are included. Of small size and often inconspicuous, they are, at times, difficult to identify other than by songs. For your added interest and pleasure you will hear the song of one of North America's rarest Warblers--the Kirtland's.

Editor's note: while you may not be excited about the record's notice for a Vol. 2 with the "EXTRA: The mockingbird sings with musical accompaniment." I certainly am. Just you wait to hear the pipe organ with bird call album I have lying around! Must find that record!
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
