The Music of Wild Birds

Posted under bird behavior & entertainment

Someone just told me about this: National Public Radio has an interesting story from 2004 about a book called “The Music of Wild Birds” by Judy Pelikan (nice name!). Pelikan’s book is a “re-illustrated and reissued” version of a 1904 book by F. Schuyler Mathews that, among other things, transcribes birdsong into standard music notation.  The NPR story (which you can listen to on that link) includes some examples, including the song of a robin, and then the same song played on a flute.
