Whether in the garden, on the balcony or on the way to work: we encounter wild birds on an almost daily basis. This book provides an opportunity to easily deepen our acquaintance with these feathered guests, even including playful “vocal training”. Migrating bird or local bird? Cave breeder or nest builder? Bärbel Oftring competently presents all important and interesting details on 70 common backyard birds, but does so in an amusing manner. You can listen to calls and songs for each species by using the KOSMOS PLUS app. Mnemonic devices and rhymes help your long-term memorization of bird calls. If you want to protect birds and feed them appropriate to their species, you will find many useful tips here, as well.
