Is the Gambel's quail recording really a CA quail?11/21/12| LHi I just received this book as a gift from my dear aunt in AZ. Thus I looked up Gambel's quail with the intent of playing it for her. I was surprised to find a "Chi-ca-go" call similar to a CA Quail not the Ka Kaaa Ka of the Gambel's. Could this be an error? I cannot find any errata posted for the book. Notably the 'song' for the CA quail, is not the well-known 'chi-ca-go' song but rather a sharp call.
Other wise I am charmed by the book and am eager to explore more of the vocalizations.
Bird Songs Bible3/4/12| PatriciaThis book is just beautiful! The drawings are amazing and the bird songs dead on, at least as far as the ones I am familiar with! I am using this to study the birds of Yellowstone before my trip this summer. It is great fun to watch the dog's reactions while I play each different song! Great coffee table book but keep away from small fingers because you will want to look at it for many years to come!
