Where can I find one?  Not anything for the computer MP3s or whatever they are called, but a good "old fashioned" CD so we can listen and learn while we are on the road.  We hear so many more birds than I think we have seen and want to become familiar with their songs. I tried Barnes and Noble yesterday in their music department and the bird guide section, but no luck.   I am sure I could find something used online, if I had some idea of titles.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for looking, but that is cassette and we don't have a player.  I'll see if there is a CD version of this. :)

I ended up finding a Peterson's CD for Eastern/Central Birds.   It puts my family to sleep though.  :)  The one thing I am glad for is the pronunciations of the bird names.  I found out I have been pronouncing Plover incorrectly.  Embarrassed

This is also a good one, it's the first of many that I've bought. It's fairly entertaining as well. http://www.amazon.co...37566738&sr=8-1 My kids will kinda-sorta tolerate it in the car.

I just noticed this old topic of mine got bumped up. We bought the Peterson's Eastern birds because we can play it on a standard CD player. A good old-fashioned relic. :D But we've been finding this is limited because there is only one song and maybe one call for each bird. This is not always helpful for IDing birds because they can have more than one. We were thrown off earlier this year when we heard an Eastern Meadowlark with a chipping type call.

We bought the NA guide by Stokes and it came with a CD of 150 bird songs and calls. We can only play it in the van though because it is an MP3. If they had a standard CD, I would get the Stokes for Eastern or all of North America's birds, because they have multiple calls and songs for the birds.

We used to rhyme Plover with Rover, when Peterson's rhymed it with lover. Oh my, it was funny how we pronounced Bobolinks, boe-boe-links. It's Bob-oh-links. I am so glad I didn't talk to any birders before hearing some of these names.
