TIPS FOR LEARN­ING DAWN CHO­RUS BIRDSONGS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Songbirds Dawn Chorus -

Jonathan says: If you are new to learn­ing bird songs and calls, don’t be in­tim­i­dated by the on­slaught of the huge va­ri­ety of songs that make up the dawn cho­rus. In­stead fo­cus your at­ten­tion on no more than four or five in­di­vid­u­als. Try and learn them with the aid of CDS, books and apps now on of­fer. Time spent well pre­par­ing, will en­sure that when you are in the field you are able to recog­nise the pat­terns in the rhythm, changes in tone and res­o­nance of the birds you learnt at home. But re­mem­ber, the dawn cho­rus is au­ral spec­tac­u­lar, not a test! In­ter­na­tional Dawn Cho­rus Day takes place this year on 1st May – visit to find an event near you.
