Fresh Air from WHYY, March 29, 2005* Donald Kroodsma is a renowned
specialist in the interpretation of bird songs. His new book, The
Singing Life of Birds: The Art and Science of Listening to Birdsong,
describes how birds communicate and why. But Kroodsma is also the
subject of another book -- about those who listen to birds.
Birdsong, by Don Stap, details the work and passions of people who
analyze the sounds of birds. Stap followed Kroodsma from the lab into
the field to write his account of the researcher at work.
