Features numerous pencil drawings and full-colour photos and includes an hour-long audio CD which includes the night time sounds of 60 animals; also information on the appearance and night time habits of each species. As anyone who has been captivated by the sounds of an evening outdoors knows, the nightly music of the woods can be a lovely but bewildering mix of hoots, croaks, howls, and grunts. This handy collection of field recordings and species descriptions helps you to identify the various members of the nocturnal chorus, from crickets and owls to otters, porcupines, and alligators. Illustrated with gorgeous pencil drawings and full-colour photographs, it's the perfect complement to the sounds of the night.
